Red Sox Claim Gaby Hernandez; Designate Manuel

The Red Sox claimed righty Gaby Hernandez off waivers from the Mariners, according to a team press release.  He'd had been designated for assignment when the Ms signed Ryan Garko.  Hernandez, 24 in May, posted a 6.0 K/9, 3.0 BB/9, and 5.23 ERA in 146.3 Triple A innings last year.  The Red Sox claiming Hernandez means all but a handful of MLB clubs passed on him.

To make room for Hernandez, the Red Sox designated pitcher Robert Manuel for assignment.  They'd claimed him from the Mariners off waivers in November.  Manuel, 26, posted a 2.88 ERA, 6.7 K/9, and 2.2 BB/9 in Triple A last year.

Yusmeiro Petit, designated to make room for Erik Bedard, cleared waivers and was outrighted to the Mariners' Triple A Tacoma club.
