Worth noting

• Left-hander Franklin Morales, who is on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation, played catch on Tuesday without any complications.

"He felt good, is pain free," manager Bobby Valentine said. "Going to start building him back up to game situation."

• Infielder Ivan De Jesus worked in the outfield before Tuesday's game. Valentine said De Jesus informed him that he can play the corners, but the first-year manager is unsure if he'll play him there.

• The Red Sox entered Tuesday having had 55 players appear in a game this season, tops in the Majors. They have only used 55 players once before, in 1996.
