The moves were made Sunday before the Red Sox faced the Oakland Athletics. Boston manager John Farrell said Britton was added to help combat Oakland’s heavy left-handed lineup.

Britton started on Tuesday for Pawtucket after beginning the season at Double-A Portland. The 24-year-old Britton, involved in a DUI during spring training, has yet to make his major league debut.
