Bates outrighted, Brown optioned in latest roster moves


The Red Sox have made a few roster moves this afternoon, outrighting first baseman/outfielder Aaron Bates to Triple-A Pawtucket, optioning catcher Dusty Brown to Triple-A Pawtucket and activating catcher Victor Martinez from the 15-day disabled list.

Bates, 26, cleared waivers and was outrighted in order to remove him from Boston's 40-man roster. He appeared in five games with the Red Sox last season, collecting 4 hits in 11 at-bats. This season Bates has appeared in 93 games with Pawtucket, hitting .222/.322/.349 with 9 home runs and 36 RBI.

Brown, 28, has appeared in six games this season with Boston, collecting only 2 hits in 11 at-bats. In 52 games this season with Pawtucket, Brown has hit .225/.325/.396 with 5 home runs and 24 RBI.

With today's moves, the Red Sox currently have 38 players officially listed on the 40-man roster with recent signing Adalberto Ibarra likely to be added shortly.
