Sox make flurry of moves


In a busy day for the Red Sox, the team made a number of moves, bringing the opening day roster into focus. Theo Epstein announced four roster moves, Manny Delcarmen and Craig Hansen were optioned to AAA Pawtucket, non-roster RHP Bryan Corey was assigned to minor league camp, and non-roster C Alberto Castillo was traded to Baltimore for (minor league) OF Cory Keylor. Additionally, it was reported that relievers Javier Lopez and Kyle Snyder would round out the back end of the Boston bullpen, C Kevin Cash would be assigned to Pawtucket and that OF Alex Ochoa will accept reassignment there as well (forgoing his right to become a free agent). Jon Lester will begin the season on the disabled list, rehabbing at class-A Greenville, where he will make four starts and will then be reevaluated (in the meantime, Lester is expected to make one more spring start). Joining him on the DL will be Matt Clement and Mike Timlin. Keylor was the Orioles' 2006 Minor League Player of the Year.
