The Red Sox just informed the media that righthanded reliever Michael Bowden is on his way to Fenway Park from Pawtucket.
He has not yet been added to the roster. But before first pitch, we expect to hear that Daisuke Matsuzaka has been placed on the disabled list.
Bowden has been terrific for the PawSox over 14 appearances: 22.2 IP, 15 H, 4 BB, 28 K and a 1.59 ERA.
My guess is that Alfredo Aceves would move into the rotation in Matsuzaka’s place.
