The Red Sox will send outfielder Daniel Nava to Pawtucket Wednesday in order to bring up pitcher Alex Wilson (WEEI
). After throwing 11 innings over the past two days, the Boston bullpen is taxed, hence the move. Outfielder Shane Victorino was scheduled to be activated Wednesday, but will wait until Thursday as Wilson is likely to be sent down after Wednesday's game with the Yankees.
The Yankees and Red Sox face-off in game two of their three-game series at Fenway Park with Michael Pineda taking on John Lackey.
