Red Sox DFA Jeff Bailey

WEEI's Rod Bradford reports that the Red Sox designated Jeff Bailey for assignment today. The move was made to free up a 40-man roster spot for younger players receiving September callups.

Bailey, 30, owns a career .228/.340/.434 batting line in 159 plate appearances in the big leagues, but he's spent most of the last five years in Triple-A. Interestingly, the Red Sox would not have had to DFA Bailey if not for the Yankees claiming Chris Carter last week.
