Red Sox May Delay Victorino, Bring Up Pitcher

UPDATE: Wilson up, Nava Down
Having endured back-to-back putrid starting pitching performances (Clay Buchholz, Jon Letser), the Red Sox are a little thin in the bullpen. Because of that, they may delay today's expected activation of Shane Victorinio in favor of short-term promotion of a pitcher from AAA Pawtucket. The likely candidates for advancement to The Show are: Allen Webster or Alex Wilson. When Victorino does get activated from the DL, it looks more and more likely that Daniel Nava (who has two minor league options left) will be sent down.
