Brian Bello, one of the leading candidates in the promotion for the Red Sox, will start on Wednesday

Bello is 6-2 with a 2.81 ERA in nine games for Triple A Worcester. He last delivered on Friday, lining up perfectly for the match.

Bello has jumped on the potential charts this season after dominating the hitters in Double A and largely keeping that against the old competition in Triple A.

He made 5 rounds of closing Friday against Rochester, allowing two-strokes and hitting eight with three walks.

Bello will face the right side Corey Kluber.

“We were kidding. I said, ‘Oh man, it’s already sold out. We can’t disappoint the people of Worcester,'” Sox manager Alex Korra He said before the 4-0 win over Rice. “It would be good for him to go out there and compete. He feels really good.”

Sale, who was at Fenway Park on Monday, made 7 runs in three minor league games. He was on the injury list all season, recovering from a rib fracture he sustained in March.

I spoke to him for a bit. Korra said. “If it was up to him, he would make the show [at Fenway on Wednesday]. But I think one more, maybe two, is there. Go compete on Wednesday and we’ll decide what we’re going to do next.”

Kiki Hernandezwho has not played since June 7 due to right hip strain, was smiling as he walked into the club before Monday’s game.

He took a few swings on Saturday and again on Monday and he’s feeling a lot better. Now it’s not about injury and more ready to play after a long hiatus.

“It’s like spring training,” Hernandez said. “We’ll see how it develops.”

The initial plan is for Hernandez to begin a secondary rehab job later this week.

The next step will be to confront the hitters.

“From there we will decide what we want to do,” Cora said.

Michael Washawho has been scratched since his debut on Monday with what the team said is a “heavy arm”, is still on the active roster pending further examination.

rich hill, who came out with a sprained left knee, had an MRI in Chicago over the weekend. He revealed a torn ligament, but he hopes to miss only two to four weeks.

“We can manage it. It’s not the end of the season,” he said.

Hill will be primed for an arc on Tuesday.

Xander Bogarts, who needed seven stitches to close the wound after it was lifted on Sunday, was out of the lineup. He texted Cora early to say it was still sore.

The hope is that he can play on Tuesday.

Josh Taylor, who has made six minor league games since June 21, is still on rehab. With three left-handed painkillers already on the list, Sox seems to be slowing down for a while.

“We’ll make the plan, and what’s next for him,” Cora said.
