Red Sox Release Chris Duncan

The Red Sox released outfielder Chris Duncan, according to Dan Barbarisi of the Providence Journal.  Duncan came to the Red Sox from St. Louis in the July 22nd swap for shortstop Julio Lugo.  Duncan, 28, hit just .188/.255/.294 in 92 Triple A plate appearances for the Sox.  Meanwhile Lugo has flourished with a .319/.367/.528 line in 81 plate appearances for St. Louis (with Boston paying the freight).  Keep in mind that the Red Sox are also set to receive a player to be named later or cash as part of the trade.

Duncan crushed right-handed pitching in 2006-07, but has been derailed by injuries since.
