Cabrera, Green, Gathright become free agents


The Red Sox yesterday outrighted Fernando Cabrera, Nick Green (pictured) and Joey Gathright, removing them from the 40-man roster and effectively making all three free agents.

Cabrera was originally signed as a free agent in January 2009 and had a stellar season at Pawtucket. Appearing in 43 games out of the bullpen, he compiled a 1.71 ERA with 22 saves. He appeared in six games with Boston, posting a 8.44 ERA.

Green appeared in 103 games for Boston, seeing the bulk of time at shortstop early in the season due to a combination of injuries and ineffectiveness on the part of Julio Lugo and an injury to Jed Lowrie. He hit .236 with 6 HR and 35 RBI. He had many memorable moments during the season, including a walk-off home run on June 21 against the Atlanta Braves, pitching 2.0 innings of scoreless relief on August 27 against the Chicago White Sox, and a key two-out walk against the Angels in a 9-8 win on September 16.

Gathright was acquired from the Baltimore Orioles on August 29 for a player to be named later or cash considerations. He appeared in 17 games for Boston, often as a pinch runner or late-inning defensive replacement, hitting .313.
