The Red Sox announced today that right-handed pitcher Alex Wilson has been called up to the big club from Pawtucket. Wilson will provide John Farrell with an extra relief option—at least until newly-acquired Stephen Drew finishes his minor-league stint. The 27-year old Wilson (who, interestingly, was born in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia), pitched 27 2/3 innings for The Carmine Hose in 2013—going 1-1 with a 4.88 ERA.
