The Boston Red Sox got one of their own back on Tuesday, as they have activated left-handed reliever Franklin Morales from the 15-day disabled list. Morales, who had been having neck and pectoral issues since the end of spring training will find himself coming out of the bullpen at first.
If he proves that he can hold up to the grind and pitch well he could become an option to get a nod as a starting pitcher. Morales, who hasn’t pitched in the majors this year, has logged 17 innings in the minors and has allowed a solid 3.18 earned run average.
To make room for Morales, the Red Sox decided to option right-handed starter Alfredo Aceves back to their Triple-A Pawtucket club. In a spot-start on Monday against the Phillies, he allowed only one run in six innings pitched.

Following Rodriguez came five straight pitchers: two of whom suffered career-shortening...
