Triple-A Pawtucket's Devern Hansack allowed an unearned run over five innings and struck out 10 in a second straight start on Wednesday.
If Julian Tavarez struggles again next time out, maybe the Red Sox won't wait any longer before going to Hansack. The 29-year-old from Nicaragua has allowed six hits, walked three and struck out 20 over 10 2/3 innings for Pawtucket.
After throwing four scoreless innings at Single-A Tuesday, manager Terry Francona said Jon Lester is "begging for more innings."
"He's the best text messager in the game," Francona said. "He text messaged me this morning, said he felt good. He's begging for more innings. He'll go five in his next start."Source: Boston Globe
Jon Lester threw four scoreless innings and struck out five Tuesday in his second start for low Single-A Greenville.
He allowed three singles and walked one. Lester, who also pitched four shutout innings last Thursday, is scheduled to make two more starts for Greenville, going five innings each time.
Jon Lester allowed one hit in four scoreless innings in his start for low Single-A Greenville on Thursday.
Lester will make three more starts in the South Atlantic League before the Red Sox reevaluate his status. He'll probably be sent to Triple-A Pawtucket once he's finished at Greenville.

May 4 Hansack was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday to take the roster spot of reliever Mike Timlin, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with tendinitis in his right shoulder.
Advice: Hansack likely will be used as long reliever with either Brendan Donnelly or Joel Pineiro take over Timlin's set-up role. Hansack, 29, was 1-3 with a 3.77 ERA in five games, all starts, for Pawtucket. He pitched a five-inning no-hitter for Boston in the final game last season, a 9-0 win over Baltimore that was called off because of rain.
What do you guys think his role be now that he is called up? More than a long reliever?
He has SP eligibility
