Daniel McGrath promoted to Lowell


The Red Sox have promoted left-handed pitcher Daniel McGrath from the Gulf Coast League Red Sox to the Short Season-A Lowell Spinners, the team announced.

McGrath, 19, was originally signed to a $400,000 bonus in February 2012 out of the Australian amateur league, with the provision that he would remain home that summer to complete high school. Making his stateside debut this season with the GCL Red Sox, McGrath was out to an excellent start. In 20 innings across four appearances, the lefty allowed only three runs on 8 hits. He walked only six batters, while his 30 strikeouts placed him third in the league. His 0.700 WHIP and 13.5 K/9 ratio were both tops among Gulf Coast League starting pitchers.

Originally scheduled to pitch today in the Gulf Coast League, there is no word on when McGrath will make his Spinners debut. The Red Sox did not announce any countermove.

UPDATE: McGrath will make his Lowell debut tonight against State College.
