According to Minor League Baseball's transaction page, newly-acquired Ryan Cook has been sent to Triple-A Pawtucket in order to make room for the Red Sox' Tuesday night starter, Henry Owens. To make room on the 40-man roster for Owens, the Red Sox released reliever Ronald Belisario. Since being acquired from Tampa Bay last month, Belisario threw 6 1/3 innings for the PawSox, allowing just four hits. Cook, who was acquired for cash considerations from Oakland at the non-waiver trade deadline, was active for the Red Sox' game against the Rays Sunday but did not pitch. He has only appeared in four major league games this season, making 30 outings (finishing 20 games) for Triple-A Nashville. Owens will be making his major league debut Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium, going up against Masahiro Tanaka.
