Heath Hembree optioned to Pawtucket

The right-hander allowed a run on three hits on Saturday and hasn't pitched a clean inning in his last five outings. "He's not a confident pitcher right now," manager John Farrell said. A replacement for Hembree wasn't announced, but RHP Joe Kelly "is definitely in play," per Farrell.
