Alfredo Aceves‘ latest stint in Boston lasted just one day.
Red Sox manager John Farrell announced Tuesday that the right-hander, who allowed one run on seven hits and three walks in a win Monday night, has been optioned to Triple-A and replaced on the roster by Franklin Morales. This marks a return to the majors for Morales, who began the season on the disabled list.
While rehabbing a bulging disk in his back throughout the first two months of the season, the 27-year-old southpaw has made stops at Class A Greenville, Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket, posting a 3.18 ERA over 17 innings in five starts.
Morales can work as either a starter or long reliever, and Farrell said the plan is to use him out of the bullpen for now, especially with the early struggles Tuesday night’s starter, Ryan Dempster, has experienced recently. In 73 appearances (including nine starts) since being acquired by the Red Sox midway through the 2011 season, Morales is 4-5 with a 3.73 ERA and 1.242 WHIP...

Alfredo Aceves is back. Aceves got the called up from Triple-A Pawtucket last week, where he has been ever since a 13-0 loss to the Oakland Athletics on April 23. He gave up eight runs on seven hits and four walks in only 3 1/3 innings. Aceves has pitched well for the Pawsox . In four starts, he was 2-1 with a 3.13 ERA. Maybe the time away in Triple-A will do Aceves some...

11 a.m. ET: Clay Buchholz’s starts so far this season have been works of art, but Red Sox fans will have to wait a few more days to see Buchholz’s mastery again.
The righty has been scratched from Monday night’s game and will likely start later this week after experiencing some irritation in his AC joint. Buchholz shrugged off the injury Sunday, saying it was just soreness...

Star 3: Dustin Pedroia
Pedroia quickly helped the Red...

From John M:Starting PitchersNew York: Hefner (0-5, 4.76 ERA)New York: Phelps (3-2, 3.96 ERA)Barbi Benton should tell Hefner he's just too old to pitch, even in the NL. She used to have some integrity, along with a great figure and more specific pluses that I won't mention on a family blog.On another note--and this not quite in the same league as the collapse of Jesus...
With the Astros moving to the American League this season Interleague Play is now throughout the season. The season began with the Angels visiting the Reds. I for one like the idea of Interleague Play throughout the season but understand it isn’t beneficial to all teams. The Red Sox are one of few teams to have just experienced interleague games for the first time during...
