Jones back to the bigs


In a move to further fortify the bullpen as the regular season winds down, the Red Sox have recalled lefthander Hunter Jones from Triple-A Pawtucket to join the expanded Boston roster, this according to Boston.com's Chad Finn. This will be the second Major League stint in 2009 for Jones, who previously appeared in 8 games for Boston in April and May, allowing 8 earned runs on 10 hits and 4 walks in 9.0 innings, striking out 7 in that span. The 25-year-old lefthander appeared in 36 games out of the Pawtucket bullpen, pitching to a 4-3 record with a 4.25 ERA in 53.0 innings of work. He struck out 39 and walked 24, but allowed only 45 hits to International League batters. Originally signed as an undrafted free agent following the 2005 draft, Jones owns a 3.09 ERA in 338.0 innings in his five seasons in the Red Sox system. Because Jones is already on the 40-man roster, no corresponding roster move is required.
