Tommy Layne earned his first save of the season Sunday as the Red Sox defeated the A's.
Koji Uehara had pitched three straight days, so the Red Sox turned to the left-handed Layne to close out Sunday's game. And he did so by striking out two of the three batters he faced in a perfect ninth frame. Layne owns a 2.50 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 19 strikeouts in 18 innings this season. Jun 7 - 5:02 PM

Layne's moving to the minors to make room for Koji Uehara, who is returning from a hamstring injury. In 2014, Layne held down a 0.95 ERA in 19 innings with the Red Sox, acting mostly as a lefty specialist. He'll probably be back later this season.

Red Sox reassigned LHP Tommy Layne, RHP Brayan Villarreal, OF Corey Brown and INF Mike McCoy to minor league camp.
