Allen Webster, Deven Marrero among three players cut from Sox camp


The Red Sox announced more roster moves on Monday trimming their roster down to 43. Among those moves, the team optioned pitcher Allen Webster and catcher Christian Vazquez to Triple-A Pawtucket, while reassigning shortstop Deven Marrero (pictured) to minor league camp. 

Webster is the only one with major league experience. Webster, a 24-year-old right-hander,  made four appearances for Boston in 2013 going 1-2 with an 8.60 ERA.

Webster has started four games this spring.  In 11 innings he gave up 10 hits and eight runs. In his most recent start on Sunday against the Rays, Webster went four innings giving up three hits,  three runs (two earned) while walking three. 

In eight games this spring, Vazquez, 23, hit .500/.583/.800 with a home run, and three runs batted in.  Vazquez projects to be the opening day catcher for Pawtucket this season. He spent  the 2013 season with Portland batting .289/.376/.395

Marrero was selected 24th overall by Boston in the 2012 draft and has played 13 games so far this spring batting .357/.455/.538. The 23-year-old hit his first home run of the spring on Sunday in an 8-4 loss to the Rays.
