Red Sox call up Michael Bowden

Apparently, Michael Bowden did not sleep with Theo Epstein's wife:

The Red Sox have recalled righthanded pitcher Michael Bowden from Triple A Pawtucket, a team source confirmed to the Globe's Nick Cafardo this afternoon.

It is uncertain at this time what the corresponding roster move might be, though there is speculation that catcher Jason Varitek (neck) might be placed on the disabled list.

Bowden, who turns 23 next month, is 4-6 with a 3.20 ERA in 22 starts for the PawSox this season. In 115.1 innings, he has allowed 91 hits, while walking 44 and strikeout 82. He has held opposing batters to a .223 average.

It's good to see my favorite prospect back in the bigs. However, if it's at the cost of Jason Varitek -- no matter how poorly he is hitting -- that's tough to see.

I'd be willing to bet we see Bowden pitch either tonight or tomorrow night, depending on the performances of Brad Penny and Junichi Tazawa.
