The Boston Red Sox have been impressed with SP Franklin Morales, which is why they'll go with a six-man rotation when SP Josh Beckett (shoulder) returns from the disabled list this weekend. "He was throwing his fastball 96 (mph) on both sides of the plate," C Jarrod Saltalamacchia said. "That's not that easy to do. Not many can. And he was throwing a nice splitter and mixing his curve in. He was nasty." Manager Bobby Valentine was very impressed with Morales' effort Thursday, June 28, too.
