In AAA Tacoma this season, Delcarmen has accumulated a 2-2 record with a 5.14 ERA through 28 innings. He last pitched in the majors after being traded to the Colorado Rockies last season, where he amassed only 8.1 innings.
Jared Carrabis says he was told that some Boston Red Sox coaches were not happy with the way John Farrell was over-using Craig Kimbrel, perhaps because he was trying to save his job.

Doug Fister (0-1) lost his Red Sox debut, giving up three runs and seven hits in six-plus innings. He was signed by Boston on Friday after being released by the Angels.
