According to multiple industry sources, the final player the Red Sox recalled in a flurry of roster moves on Monday is relief pitcher Brayan Villarreal, whom the Sox acquired from Detroit in last monthís three-team trade with Chicago for starter Jake Peavey.

In two appearances for Triple-A Pawtucket, the right-handed Villarreal has allowed one hit and no runs over 2 1/3 innings, walking one and striking out two while earning one save. He went 2-2 for Toledo this season while in Detroitís organization with a 3.15 ERA in 28 appearances. In 34 1/3 innings, he allowed 26 hits and 12 earned runs with 26 walks and 41 strikeouts.

More pitchers with control issues.

If he can get his control under wraps he is a very very good reliever

Until he throws a 4 pitch walk to lose the game. Real solid.

Might be worth a callup to be a 7th inning option.
