Reliever Carson Smith Set To Join Red Sox On Tuesday

If there were frequent flier miles between Boston and Pawtucket, Marco Hernandez would qualify for a free trip to Hawaii by now. The young infielder was again sent back to AAA to make room for the likely activation of relief pitcher Carson Smith on Tuesday in Chicago. Smith successfully completed his rehab assignments in the minors and is ready to join the big club's 'end of the bullpen' crew. Said Smith, "At this point, I feel like I'm 100 percent healthy. I don't know if we're going to have any limitations; I haven't talked to (John Farrell) about that and we haven't really gone over that. As far as I know, I'm 100 percent healthy and capable of doing anything they ask." Stay tuned!
