BOSTON -- The Red Sox demoted struggling switch-hitting outfielder Daniel Nava and recalled right-hander Alex Wilson on Wednesday. Nava, 31, was a big part of Bostons run to the 2013 World Series title, but was hitting just .149 with two homers and three RBI when he was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket before the game against the New York Yankees. Wilson went 1-1 with a 4.88 ERA in 26 games with the Red Sox last year. Boston starters were hit hard recently and manager John Farrell went to his bullpen 10 times in the past three games, forcing him to add a reliever. "Given the number of innings by our bullpen the past four, five days, we needed to add another arm, some help out there," he said before Wednesdays game. "Also, we felt like we need to find a way to get Daniel Nava going again. His struggles at the plate, I think, are evident. Were trying to get him back to seeing him be the player he has in the past." Batting mostly from the left side of the plate in a platoon with Jonny Gomes in left field, Nava hit a career-best .303 for Boston last year with 12 homers and 66 RBIs. "Weve got to get a guy back that was pivotal to our success last year, particularly from the left side of the plate," Farrell said. "Its going to take some at-bats to do just that." Nava had been in the majors for a good portion of the past two seasons, so Farrell knew the news would be tough for the player. "As you might expect, he was disappointed," Farrell said. "I cant say there was disbelief. It was a disappointing message to deliver, given his role last year and the contributions. But in combination for the need for another reliever, while not liking it or deep-down agreeing with it, he knew it was a necessity."

The 19-year-old Russian began the season in the NHL, but struggled to adapt. He scored two goals in 18 games before being demoted to the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Jan. 11. Grigorenko initially refused to report to Quebec, preferring to develop in Rochester of the American Hockey League. An agreement between the NHL and the Canadian Hockey League does not allow teenagers to play in the AHL.dddddddddddd Buffalo wouldve likely preferred Grigorenko play for Rochester. The Sabres tried to send Grigorenko to Rochester on a conditioning assignment in November, but the NHL denied the request. Grigorenko has dominated at major junior level, scoring 178 points over parts of three seasons with Quebec. He had 48 points in 28 games for the Remparts after his demotion. With the Remparts season over, Grigorenko is allowed to play in the AHL.
