Bowden to make debut Saturday


The Red Sox have called up RHP Michael Bowden from Pawtucket and is scheduled to start and make his major league debut in Saturday's game against the White Sox. Bowden, 21, has an 0-3 record with a 3.38 ERA in 40 innings over seven games (six starts) with the Paw Sox, allowing 15 earned runs on 40 hits (.261 BAA), striking out 29 and walking five. A supplemental first-round pick in 2005 as compensation for losing Derek Lowe to free agency, Bowden becomes the fifth member of that draft class to make the major league roster (Ellsbury, Hansen, Buchholz, Lowrie). He will fill the roster spot opened when 1B Sean Casey was placed on the DL earlier today. Bowden is currently the second ranked prospect overall in the organization by SoxProspects.com.
