Report: Bowden summoned from Triple-A
By Joe McDonald
ARLINGTON, Texas -- There’s still no update on injured Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury at this point, but according to a report, it appears reliever Michael Bowden has been recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.
The Providence Journal reports the right-hander has left McCoy Stadium and will join the Red Sox here at Rangers Ballpark. The Texas Rangers defeated Boston 10-9 in 11 innings Friday night and manager Terry Francona blew out his entire bullpen.
This will be Bowden’s second stint with the Red Sox this season, and he has not allowed a run in 2 1/3 innings of relief.
