Bailey recalled, Masterson to Paw Sox pen

OF/1B Jeff Bailey has been recalled by the Red Sox and in a corresponding move RHP Justin Masterson has been optioned to AAA Pawtucket. At Pawtucket, Masterson will be transitioning into a relief role and is expected to return to the Sox within weeks and work out of the bullpen. In seven nine starts with the Red Sox in 2008, Masterson was 4-3 with a 3.97 ERA, allowing 22 ER on 40 hits in 54 innings pitched, striking out 39 and walking 28. RHP Clay Buchholz is expected to be recalled on Friday to take what would have been Masterson's turn in the rotation against Baltimore.
