Terry Francona just announced Justin Masterson will be headed to the bullpen, starting with a stint in Pawtucket.Judging from his splits, I assume the Sox are looking at Masterson as more of a specialist against RHB.
PA AVG OBP SLGI like this move. The bullpen obviously needs help, it's always nice to have possible solutions in-house (while Masterson is clearly learning inning-by-inning, he has not seemed overwhelmed in the slightest) and Clay Buchholz is better suited to the rotation this year.

Gumball Bailey is taking Masterson's place on the roster.
