Red Sox reportedly call pitcher Joe Jacques from Worcester

Red Sox

The 28-year-old southpaw could be in line for his Major League debut.

The Red Sox reportedly called up left-handed relief pitcher Joe Jacques before the start of a three-game series against the Yankees on Friday.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post first reported the news, as Jacques will fill the spot vacated by another recent Boston call-up – Matt Dermody – who Boston manager Alex Cora said would be slated for assignment after Thursday’s 10-3 loss to the Guardians.

Jacques, 28, will make his Major League debut if called up by Cora. He has pitched 27.2 innings for Triple-A Worcester so far in 2023, compiling a 1-3 record and a 3.58 ERA.

After five years in the minor leagues, Jacques could be about to have a particularly proud moment for the New Jersey native. As MLB Network reporter Jon Morosi underline, Jacques received no Division I offers from colleges and ended up on the team at Manhattan College. He was chosen in the 33rd round by the Pirates in 2018.

It has a handgun slot and its delivery features “very difficult mechanics for left-handed hitters to understand,” according to Sox Prospects.

The Red Sox are currently last in the American League East at 31-32, behind the Yankees (third in the division) by 5.5 games.
