Sox switch gears, designate Atchison instead of McDonald

Changing course from last night's announced roster move, the Red Sox today decided not to designate outfielder Darnell McDonald for assignment, instead opting to designate relief pitcher Scott Atchison for assignment to make room on the active roster for outfielder Mike Cameron. After starting three games in a row following his activation from the disabled list, outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury reportedly has soreness in his left side, which led the club to opt to keep McDonald on the roster for extra depth.

According to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe, Atchison will be optioned to Pawtucket after clearing waivers. The story is likely referring to optional assignment waivers, which are described in detail on the SoxProspects.com Wiki.
