Bonser throws 95 mph in relief appearance

BALTIMORE — Red Sox pitching Boof Bonser‘s fastball registered at 95 mph in his inning of relief on Saturday night with Triple-A Pawtucket, according to manager Terry Francona. The relief outing was the first by Bonser in his 30-day rehab assignment, which concluded on Saturday with his perfect inning (2 groundouts and a lineout).
“He threw the ball really well,” said Francona. “[His velocity] played up for that inning, which we expected.”
Bonser has been returned to the Red Sox from his rehab assignment. There is no official date by which he must be activated from the disabled list, but it would appear likely that the Sox will activate him in the coming days. Bonser has a 6.34 ERA in nine rehab games with Triple-A Pawtucket this year, but he allowed just one run in his final three appearances, spanning 14 innings.
