BOSTON, MA – The Boston Red Sox today recalled right-handed pitcher Connor Seabold from Triple-A Worcester. To make room on the active major league roster, the Red Sox returned right-handed pitcher Brad Peacock to the Worcester roster following last night’s game against the Chicago White Sox.
Seabold will start tonight’s game against the White Sox and wear number 67.
Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom made the announcement.
Seabold, 25, is making his first appearance on an active major league roster. Acquired from the Philadelphia Phillies on August 21, 2020, the right-hander made his Triple-A debut this season. In eight starts with Worcester, Seabold has gone 2-3 with a 3.67 ERA (17 ER/41.2 IP), 44 strikeouts, 13 walks, a 1.06 WHIP, and a .201 opponent batting average. Ranked by Baseball America as the Red Sox’ No. 12 prospect, he last pitched on September 4 at Rochester, earning the win after allowing only one hit in 6.0 scoreless innings.
Peacock, 33, made two appearances (one start) for Boston after being selected to the major league roster on August 31, allowing nine runs in 5.1 innings (15.19 ERA). The right-hander is 34-31 with a 4.11 ERA (256 ER/560.0 IP) in 183 career major league appearances (84 starts) for the Washington Nationals (2011), Houston Astros (2013-20), and Red Sox (2021).
