ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Red Sox will have RHP Zach Stewart start against the Angels on Wednesday.
He was one of the players obtained from the White Sox for Kevin Youkilis.
Stewart is 3-8, 5.92 in 31 games (12 starts) in the majors for the Jays and White Sox. He was 3-5, 3.94 in 11 starts for Triple A Pawtucket after the trade.
• Alfredo Aceves was activated off the suspended list by the team. Bobby Valentine met with him for 30 minutes today. The coaches then met with Aceves for 20 minutes. All sides seem to be OK, but Aceves was generally unresponsive to questions from reporters. It was a little tense for a few minutes, but that has been the case with Aceves since spring training.
• LHP Franklin Morales (shoulder) went on the disabled list. Seems like more of a precaution. That makes 27 players on the DL 34 times for the Red Sox. In both categories, that’s the most for any team going back to at least 1987 and for the Red Sox since 1971.
• Cody Ross is just getting a day off
• Will Middlebrooks is not on the trip. He’s getting a CT scan on his broken right wrist on Friday back in Boston.
• Andrew Bailey (who has worked 4 of the last 5 games) likely not available. Aceves may be needed to close.
