With Christian Arroyo in COVID-19 protocol — he was scratched from Tuesday’s game against the A’s — the Red Sox recalled outfielder Jarren Duran from Triple A Worcester, the team announced.
The Sox also recalled pitcher Josh Winckowski, who will get the start for Wednesday’s game at Fenway Park against Oakland and righthander James Kaprielian.
Duran, 25, homered Tuesday for the WooSox. He is hitting .305/.379/.531 with 6 homers and 23 extra-base hits in 43 games. He’s also 4 for 13 in three big league games across two callups this year.
Arroyo was placed on the COVID-19-related injured list, and pitcher Phillips Valdez was optioned to Worcester following Tuesday night’s game.
