Bowden gets the call


In a move to bolster the bullpen going into the weekend series against New York, the Red Sox have recalled Michael Bowden from Pawtucket and designated Fernando Cabrera for assignment to clear a roster spot. Bowden worked two perfect innings in relief, striking out two, against the Yankees April 26 in his only appearance with the big club in 2009. On the season with Pawtucket he owns a 4-6 record in 22 starts, all with Pawtucket, allowing 41 earned runs on 94 hits over 115.1 innings for a 3.20 ERA and .223 average. In his last outing with Pawtucket, Bowden worked 6.2 innings, allowing 2 runs on 5 hits, striking out 4, walking 2 and taking the loss at Gwinnett (Braves), August 16. He is currently the fourth ranked prospect in the organization by SoxProspects.com ... In other roster moves this afternoon, the Red Sox have activated Rocco Baldelli from the disabled list and optioned Brian Anderson to Pawtucket in a concurrent move.
