Timlin moving closer

Veteran right-handed reliever Mike Timlin has been moved to Triple-A Colorado Springs after two appearances scoreless appearances for Rookie-level Casper.

Timlin, a veteran of 18 Major League seasons, last appeared in the Majors for the Red Sox during last year’s American League Championship Series against the Rays.

That will give Colorado Springs two experienced relievers in case of injury. Matt Herges, who began this season with the Indians, also is there.

Veteran reinforcement on the way?

Timlin went 5-5 with a 5.56 ERA in 47 games with the Red Sox last season.
