Blue Jays’ Jacob Waguespack expected to start Wednesday vs. Red Sox

Rafael Devers had two home runs and six RBI as the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-6.

Right-hander Jacob Waguespack is expected to start for the Toronto Blue Jays against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, according to manager Charlie Montoyo.

Sportsnet’s Ben Nicholson-Smith added that a roster move is forthcoming to make room for Waguespack.

Waguespack has appeared in one game at the big-league level so far this season, pitching four innings of relief back on May 27 against the Tampa Bay Rays. In that lone appearance, the 25-year-old allowed three hits and two earned runs, while striking out seven batters.

In 12 games (11 starts) with triple-A Buffalo this season, Waguespack has compiled a 2-6 record, 5.30 ERA and allowed 57 hits in 52.2 innings of work.

Waguespack was selected in the 37th round of the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates.
