Young pitchers square off as Red Sox host Mariners

BOSTON -- Two pitchers who have combined for exactly two major league wins face each other when Rob Whalen makes his Seattle Mariners debut against the Boston Red Sox's Brian Johnson in Game 2 of a three-game series at Fenway Park on Saturday.

Whalen, acquired by Seattle from the Atlanta Braves last Nov. 28, is 1-2 with a 6.57 ERA in five career games, all starts and all with the Braves in 2016. He was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday while the Mariners were in Washington in the middle of this eight-game road trip.

Johnson, being recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket for the second time this season, is 1-1 with a 7.71 ERA in two big league starts, picking up a win over the Toronto Blue Jays on April 18 -- when he went five innings and allowed four runs.
