 BOSTON (AP) -The Boston Red Sox called up Bobby Kielty from Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday, giving them an experienced backup outfielder.
They optioned rookie outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury to Pawtucket after he was recalled to play in Friday night's second game of a doubleheader against the Los Angeles Angels. Earlier Friday, the Red Sox traded outfielder Wily Mo Pena to Washington.
They plan to use Kielty as a backup in left and right field during their stretch drive. Boston has led the AL East since April 18.
``My role here is to bat off lefties,'' the right-handed Kielty said. ``There's pressure coming to any team. Being a new player you want to perform well.''
Boston signed Kielty to a minor league contract on Aug. 6 after Oakland designated him for assignment. He was 7-for-35 in 13 games in his fourth season with the Athletics.
In 10 games with Pawtucket, he hit .237 with two homers and five RBIs.
Kielty, 31, has a career batting average of .255 with 52 homers. He has played 579 games with Minnesota, Toronto and Oakland.
