BOSTON (CBS) – The Red Sox placed relief pitcher Franklin Morales on the 15-day disabled list with a left forearm strain and called up righty Michael Bowden.
The lefthanded Morales has allowed two runs in 3.0 innings with the Red Sox this season. Boston acquired Morales in a trade with the Rockies earlier this month.
Bowden had a 4.70 ERA in 14 relief appearances in 2010. He has not pitched for the big league club in 2011.
