The Red Sox sent down starter Junichi Tazawa Saturday, and called up reliever Marcus McBeth, who last pitched in the major leagues in 2007 with the Reds. Tazawa was 2-3 with a 6.65 ERA in five games (four starts), and will probably be back in September. For now, he was sent to the Rookie-Level Gulf Coast League Red Sox.
McBeth was called up earlier this season from July 31 to August 1, but did not get into a game.
