Red Sox call up RHP Webster for doubleheader
Webster is scheduled for his major league debut Sunday night in the rescheduled game of Friday night's postponement because of the manhunt for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.
At Triple-A Pawtucket, Webster had a 0.90 ERA and no record with 12 strikeouts and three walks in 10 innings during two starts. He was part of the nine-player trade last August that sent Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez and Nick Punto to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Red Sox did not have to remove a player from their roster because of a major league rule that allows team to have 26 players for doubleheaders.
