McGair: Albers passes first relief test with PawSox

April 17, 2011

PAWTUCKET - Matt Albers looked sharp in the first of two scheduled relief appearances Sunday for the Pawtucket Red Sox. The righthander pitched a 1-2-3 sixth inning, needing just 11 pitches (eight) strikes to set down the heart of the Buffalo Bisons' offense.
Albers threw exclusively fastballs that generally resided in the 93 miles per hour range, according to the McCoy Stadium radar gun. He topped out at 94 mph. His outs came via groundout to third, a fly to center that Ryan Kalish made a nice diving play coming in and a swinging strikeout on a changeup.
Albers is scheduled to pitch again for Pawtucket on Tuesday. The 28-year-old was placed on the disabled list on April 8 (retroactive to the 6th), meaning he's eligible to come off the D.L. on Thursday.
