Craig Hansen Called Up

The Boston Herald reports that the Red Sox will call up Craig Hansen.
Hansen will take the place of David Pauley, who allowed five runs in 4 1/3 innings during his spot start on Tuesday. Hansen, who underwent sleep apnea surgery over the winter, has struck out 13 while allowing just four walks in 12 1/3 scoreless innings at Triple-A.


No buzz on this guy for the last 2 years, but has done very well this season. Rotoworld says Hansen will be taking over Pauley's spot, but I don't expect the Sox to use him as a starter as they did with Pauley last night. Hansen has 12.1IP in the minors this year and none as a starter. This is the guy who was supposed to be the Red Sox closer of the future before Papelbon was given the chance to close games.

Maybe they're thinking of putting Hansen into the pen and sliding Julian Tavarez into a start.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Well Tavaras pitched yesterday so there's no way he's starting. I guess Delcarmen is also out with the flu so Hansen is probably just up for a day or two as an extra bullpen arm. Hasen should be up permanently in a few months.
