Sox continue roster cuts

The Red Sox announced today that pitchers Ramon A. Ramirez and Michael Bowden and first baseman Aaron Bates have been optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Well-traveled pitcher Jorge Sosa was also reassigned to minor league camp.

Ramirez posted a 7.50 ERA in four appearances this spring, striking out one batter while walking seven in six innings of work. In Bowden's lone start of the spring, he went three innings, giving up six hits and three runs. Bowden also made three relief appearances, yielding two runs in 5.2 innings out of the pen. Bates struggled offensively this spring, hitting just .179/.226/.214
in 28 at-bats. Sosa appeared in four games after arriving late to camp due to visa issues, putting up a 5.40 ERA in 5 innings.
