Reddick out, Traber in

The Red Sox have not yet made a formal announcement, but Josh Reddick is on his way back to the minor leagues with lefthander Billy Traber poised to take his spot on the 25-man roster for tonight’s game with Tampa Bay. The Red Sox have an obvious need for a fresh arm in the wake of last night’s 13-inning loss, during which manager Terry Francona emptied out his bullpen. All six Boston relievers appeared in the game and Clay Buchholz was due to enter in the 14th had the game gone that far.

Traber is 7-5 with a 3.32 ERA in 32 games (four starts) at Triple A Pawtucket this year.
