Ramon A. Ramirez Clears Waivers

BoSox reliever Ramon A. Ramirez cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket, writes Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe.  The move leaves 39 men on Boston's 40-man roster.

Ramirez has just 16 big league games to his credit, but pitched decently while with the Reds' Triple-A affiliate.  In 31 appearances last season (20 of which were starts), Ramirez posted a 4.03 ERA with 5.5 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9.  His 39.1 innings pitched in the majors yielded a 2.97 ERA with 6.6 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9.

The move also clears up confusion within the Boston clubhouse as they have another reliever by the name of Ramon Ramirez.  He was acquired in 2008 when Theo Epstein & Co. sent Coco Crisp to the Royals.  As they said in the Highlander, there can be only one.
