The Boston Red Sox take on the Oakland Athletics on Friday night with first pitch scheduled for 9:35 P.M. ET.

Before the game, the Red Sox made a roster move and recalled right handed pitcher Noe Ramirez from Triple-A Pawtucket and optioned left handed pitcher Robbie Ross Jr. down to Pawtucket.

The move was an interesting one after many thought pitcher Hector Velazquez would be sent back down after a poor debut on the mound in Thursday nights loss.
