    Observations:

    One of the interesting corollaries of the way Ellsbury has struggled this season is that he's priced himself back into a range where the Red Sox can consider him this offseason on a one-year pillow deal.

    In order for the Sox to be fully confident in Jackie Bradley in CF, they need to see him there more regularly.

    He's just coming back from a shoulder injury in Pawtucket, and thus isn't playing the field every day just yet.

    When he's ready to return, you'll probably see Alex Wilson bumped from the pen and back to Triple-A.

    The reason the Sox are still stretching Morales out is to be that big-league depth option in case of injury -- the way Alfredo Aceves was when John Lackey went down in April.

    Morales would probably slide ahead of Allen Webster on the emergency starter list since he did produce reasonably well in that role last season.

    One of the more frustrating elements of last September for the Red Sox was not being able to get more of a look at Morales as a starter because of his injury.

    How well Breslow and Miller are pitching has little bearing on how Morales fits into the bullpen.

     If there's no room in the starting rotation, he'll join the bullpen just like he would have if he was a righty.
