According to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe, the Red Sox have placed left hander Franklin Morales on the 15-day disabled list with a left forearm strain.  Morales was acquired by Boston from the Rockies last weekend for future cash considerations.  Morales was designated for assignment by Colorado just prior to the trade.

In two appearances as a member of the Red Sox, Morales has logged three innings of five hit ball while only surrendering two earned runs.  Morales was the primary long man for the Red Sox, with Alfredo Aceves and Tim Wakefield in the pitching rotation.

Replacing him will be right hander Michael Bowden, who will likely only be on the big league roster for a little while. With Bobby Jenks expected return scheduled for Monday against the White Sox, this will likely be a one day thing for Bowden
