Red Sox Designate Drew Sutton For Assignment

The Red Sox swapped out utility men today, designating Drew Sutton for assignment to open a 40-man roster spot for Nate Spears, tweets WEEI's Rob Bradford.

Both players were signed by the Red Sox to minor league deals in December.  Sutton bounced up and down with the Red Sox this year, and then dislocated his finger and needed surgery last month.  The 28-year-old hit .315/.362/.444 in his 60 plate appearances with the big club and has a .295/.382/.476 line at Triple-A.  This year he's played all around the infield and at the outfield corners.
