BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have made two moves that cold help fill their injury-depleted pitching staff, agreeing to terms with Kevin Millwood on a minor league contract and acquiring Franklin Morales from the Colorado Rockies.

The Red Sox also designated struggling left-hander Hideki Okajima for assignment.

General manager Theo Epstein announced the moves after Boston beat Detroit Thursday night. He says Millwood’s deal is contingent on the right-hander passing a physical.

Millwood opted out of a minor league contract with the Yankees on May 1. He will start out in Fort Myers, Fla.

The Red Sox will give the Rockies a player to be named or cash for the left-handed Morales.

Starters John Lackey and Daisuke Matsuzaka both went on the DL this week with right elbow strains.
