Morales, Wilson nearing rehab assignments

BALTIMORE -- Considering all the injuries the Red Sox have had to the bullpen, they could use some reinforcements.

Toward that end, left-hander Franklin Morales and right-hander Alex Wilson will start Minor League rehab assignments for Triple-A Pawtucket in the coming days.

Morales, who was a swing man for the Red Sox earlier this season, is coming back as a reliever and could be an important piece with Andrew Miller done for the season.

Morales, who last pitched for the Red Sox on June 22 and has been out with a left pectoralis strain, will throw an inning for Pawtucket on Monday. Wilson, who has been out since July 9 with a right thumb strain, will get his inning Tuesday.

Wilson figures to make it back to the Red Sox sooner because he's been out for less time.
