A quick news tidbit here: Outfielder Josh Reddick has been called up from Pawtucket, according to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe.  Darnell McDonald, who has contributed very little so far this year has been put on the disabled list to make room for him on the 25-man roster.  

It was reported yesterday that J.D. Drew was going to miss a few days with a strained hamstring, and presumably they felt better about how Reddick is performing than running Cameron or McDonald out there for a few days.  It'll definitely be interesting to see if the patience he appears to have developed in AAA this year will hold over against major league pitching- and he's not getting off easy, being scheduled to face Max Scherzer today.

Personally, I'm pretty excited to see if his very impressive 2011 campaign will translate to the majors.  Should we all be starting to get used to seeing Reddick in Right Field at Fenway?  Considering Drew, Cameron, and McDonald have all been pretty disappointing so far this year, if Reddick can have some success at the major league level, he might be getting significant playing time faster than we thought.
