Has he been called up yet ? This was posted two days ago. But have not seen the offical annoucement .

Do they wait until just before the game ?
Could it be Workman starting?

Red Sox To Purchase Contract Of Kyle Kendrick

MLB Trade Rumors "The Red Sox will purchase the contract of righty Kyle Kendrick to start on Thursday, as Tim Britton of the Providence Journal was among those to report on Twitter. It seems the organization will open a 40-man spot by placing an injured player (likely Tyler Thornburg) to the 60-day DL. Kendrick,..." May 0

Pretty typical for them to wait as long as possible. It allows them to maximize their use of the AAA shuttle.

...and this is why. Had the Sox made the move earlier then they would have replaced one of the RPs. The unfortunate accident for Hernandez gave them a different route to filling out the roster without reshuffling the BP.

As expected, the Red Sox placed Marco Hernandez on the 10-day disabled list today. The utility infielder suffered a left shoulder subluxation while fielding a ground ball at third base last night.

Right-handed pitcher Kyle Kendrick took Hernandez' roster spot and will start tonight's series finale against the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park. Kendrick will fill Steven Wright's spot in the rotation. Wright is battling soreness in his left knee.

Kendrick went 1-3 with a 6.00 ERA in four starts this season for the Pawtucket Red Sox. His last outing was a one-hit, seven-inning, shutout performance on April 28.

To make room for Kendrick on the Sox' 40-man roster, the team transfered injured relief pitcher Tyler Thornburg to the 60-day disabled list.Boston Herald
