First Set Of Call-Ups

Today marks the first day of September, and that means the rosters expand. The Sox have been plagued with injuries, so this couldn't have came at a better time. As of this point they have brought up 5 players, but expect more after Pawtucket's season raps up. So far, Clay Buchholz, Jacoby Ellsbury, Brandon Moss, Royce Clayton, and Bryan Corey have been called up. With Manny, Drew, and Kielty ailing, I would guess we see a lot of Ellsbury and Moss over the next week. Buchholz will be the starter tonight for the Sox, since Tavarez had to pitch last night. Clayton is here for insurance and Corey is for depth in the pen. I wouldn't count on seeing much of either player.
