Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Brandon Workman will be called up from Triple-A Pawtucket to make Wednesday's start for the Boston Red Sox in place of Jon Lester in the finale of a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Red Sox manager John Farrell cited the possibility of Lester being traded as the reason for the change. Farrell made the announcement in the postgame press conference following Boston's 4-2 loss to Toronto on Tuesday night.

Lester, however, will start Friday if he isn't dealt by Thursday's non-waiver trade deadline.

Workman is 1-3 with a 4.13 ERA over 11 games (eight starts) for Boston this season. He is 6-1 with a 4.45 ERA in 10 starts for Pawtucket.

Lester, who is in the final year of his contract with the Red Sox, is 10-7 with a 2.52 ERA in 21 games this season.
