Worth noting

  Franklin Morales (pectoral muscle) threw long toss from 120-130 feet out on Thursday for the second consecutive day and came away from it feeling symptom-free. The left-hander, who has been on the disabled list all season, will throw a bullpen session, likely around 30 pitches, during the Red Sox's upcoming series in Texas, Farrell said. Morales will need to throw a couple side sessions before going on a rehabilitation assignment.
