Red Sox Designate Fabio Castro For Assignment

The Red Sox designated lefty Fabio Castro for assignment to create roster space for new acquisition Eric Patterson, according to the team. The Red Sox acquired Patterson from Oakland over the weekend after the A's designated the infielder for assignment.

The Red Sox have called Castro up twice this year, but manager Terry Francona has yet to bring the 25-year-old into a game. In 17 Triple A appearances, he has a 6.65 ERA with 7.5 K/9 and 4.6 BB/9. Castro last appeared in a major league game as a member of the 2007 Phillies.

GOOD RIDDANCE. Maybe next time they call someone up for emergency BP duty, will choose someone who can actually get people out at the AAA level at least, like Robert Manuel, or Robert Coello who has been doing a good job at AA and just got called up to AAA.

I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Fabio Castro. He was the player to be named later in the deal that got my Phillies Matt Stairs. And we all know what he did after that….

Phillies traded Jim Thome for Aaron Rowand, Gio Gonzalez, and Daniel Haigwood. They traded Haigwood for Fabio Castro and Gonzalez (along with Gavin Floyd) for Freddy Garcia.

All Pat Gillick moves…and yet we won the World Series.
