Penny released to make room for Wagner

According to John Tomase of the Boston Herald, righthanded starter Brad Penny asked for and was granted his release from the Red Sox last night, a move that will make room for the recently acquired Billy Wagner on the 25-man roster. Penny went 7-8 with a 5.61 ERA in 24 starts for Boston, striking out 89, walking 42 and allowing 160 hits in 131.2 innings, after signing a one-year $5 million contract during the off-season. The deal also included up to $3 million in incentives, all of which Penny failed to reach during his time with the Red Sox. A veteran of ten major league seasons with Florida, Los Angeles and Boston, Penny owns a career record of 101-83 with a 4.18 ERA in 269 starts.
