Boston roster trimmed by four

According to Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston, the Red Sox have trimmed their roster to 35 by optioning catcher Dusty Brown and newly acquired infielder Kevin Frandsen to Triple-A Pawtucket in addition to reassigning catcher Gustavo Molina and third baseman Jorge Jimenez to minor league camp. All four players figure to see significant playing time in Pawtucket this upcoming season.

Frandsen was
acquired for cash or a player to be named later on Friday. Jimenez was recently returned to the Red Sox by the Florida Marlins after he was taken by the Houston Astros in the Rule 5 Draft in December and subsequently traded to Florida.

In other roster news, Sox skipper Terry Francona also acknowledged that right-handers Boof Bonser and Daisuke Matsuzaka will not be a part of the opening day 25-man roster as they continue to work their way back from injuries.
