Scott Podsednik Status: Red Sox Recall Outfielder From Pawtucket

The Boston Red Sox have called up outfielder Scott Podsednik from Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday (via WEEI).

Podsednik is with the team as they prepare for today's game in Baltimore against the Orioles. This call-up might mean that outfielder Ryan Sweeney is headed for the 7-day disabled list with post-concussion symptoms.

Podsednik was acquired earlier in May with a trade with the Phillies. His last time playing in the major leagues was in 2010 with the Dodgers and Royals. He has spent his time this season in the minors between Lehigh Valley and Pawtucket. In 31 games, he is hitting .238 with one home run and 10 RBI. He also has 11 walks and eight stolen bases out of nine attempts. During his 2010 season in MLB, Podsednik swiped 35 bases while hitting .297 with six homers, 51 RBI and 40 walks.
