Lars Anderson and Josh Reddick will join the Boston Red Sox, the latest Paw Sox to receive the call-up for the final month of the season.
Lars, the former unanimous top prospect of the Red Sox’ system, recovered from a poor 2009 with a huge start to the year in Portland. Pawtucket hasn’t been quite so easy for the first baseman, but he’s bounced back from a rough start with a few solid months.
Josh Reddick was pulled from his game after hitting a double and a home run—very much indicative of how things have been going for the outfielder this last month. While the first couple months of the season looked like a continuation of the horrible start Reddick had in Pawtucket last year after a major league call up, he’s slowly turned things around before exploding in August, hitting eight home runs while posting a .997 OPS.
