Red Sox activate Jenks for game against old team

The Boston Red Sox have activated right-hander Bobby Jenks from

the 15-day disabled list.

Jenks was in uniform and available for Tuesday night’s game

against his old team, the Chicago White Sox.

To make room for Jenks on the roster, the Red Sox optioned

righty Michael Bowden to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Also Tuesday, the Red Sox said injured shortstop Marco Scutaro

has been cleared to resume baseball activities. Pitcher Daisuke

Matsuzaka went for a second opinion on his injured right elbow.

Jenks has been on the disabled list since May 2 with a right

biceps strain. He has pitched in 11 games in Boston this year,

going 1-2 with a 9.35 ERA and 10 strikeouts.
