Red Sox call up pitcher Dylan Covey, option Ryan Weber


Dylan Covey is getting another chance. The Red Sox announced Saturday that they have recalled the right-handed pitcher from their alternate training site and optioned pitcher Ryan Weber to the alternate training site in a corresponding move.

Covey, who was a first-round pick back in 2010, was acquired from the Rays on July 21. He made his Red Sox debut, and only appearance of the season to date, on July 25 against the Orioles, when he allowed two runs on three hits in two innings of work.

Weber has struggled in three starts this season, carrying a 9.90 ERA. He allowed two runs in three innings in a no-decision Friday night while striking out three, walking two and giving up five hits.
