Wilson being moved to bullpen in minors
(4/24/2012) The Providence Journal reports the Red Sox have moved prospect Alex Wilson from the rotation to the bullpen at Triple-A Pawtucket. "This is something we've talked about doing for a while and felt like now is the right time," farm director Ben Crockett said Tuesday. "We often like to stretch guys out in starter roles to help pitch development, and at this point we've seen enough development of Alex's mix to feel comfortable moving him to the pen. We think his stuff will play up in that role once he learns the routine and gets comfortable." Wilson went 1-0 with a 5.27 ERA in his three starts for the PawSox.
