Bowden recalled, Lora shipped out

Michael Bowden is back with Boston, and this time, he's here to stay. In an effort to fortify the back end of the major league bullpen, the Red Sox have recalled the 23-year-old righthander from Triple-A Pawtucket and have announced that he will be with the big league club for the rest of the season. For Bowden, this will be his third stint with Boston this season, having so far allowed 7 earned runs on 8 hits and 3 walks in 4.0 major league innings in 2009. For Pawtucket, Bowden had gone 4-6 with a 3.13 ERA in 24 starts, striking out 88 in 126.1 innings. He is currently the seventh-ranked prospect in the Red Sox system by SoxProspects.com.

In other news, Joe McDonald of the Providence Journal is reporting that the Red Sox today completed half of the team's trade for reliever Billy Wagner, sending GCL first baseman Eddie Lora to the New York Mets. Signed as an international free agent out of the Dominican Republic in 2006, Lora had appeared in 34 games this season, hitting .222/.287/.414 with 3 home runs in 99 at-bats.
