Red Sox call up Lin


Cue the Red Sox Linsanity jokes.

After the injury to Jacoby Ellsbury on Friday afternoon, the Red Sox have called up outfielder Che-hsuan Lin from the Pawtucket Red Sox.

According to his agent, Lin is "excited and nervous" about his first stint in the Major Leagues.

Last season, the 23-year-old hit .235 with two home runs and 25 RBI for the Red Sox Triple-A affiliate.
