Red Sox claim Max Ramirez, DFA Matt Fox

A year after a deal to acquire Texas catcher Max Ramirez fell through, the Red Sox claimed Ramirez, who was designated for assignment Monday, off waivers from the Rangers. Ramirez, who hit .217 with 2 home runs and 8 RBI in 28 games for the Rangers last season, was slated to come to Boston last offseason in a trade for Mike Lowell. He spent the remainder of the season with Triple-A New Orleans, batting .286 with 3 home runs, 29 RBI and an OPS of .754 in 56 games. In seven minor league seasons, Ramirez has batted .298 with 78 homers and OPS of .872.

In a corresponding move, pitcher Matt Fox was designated for assignment. After allowing 2 runs on 4 hits in 5.2 innings in his only appearance for the Twins last season, Fox was claimed by Boston, where he put up those same numbers in 1.2 innings of work.
