The Red Sox designated reliever Bryan Corey for assignment today to make room for Mike Lowell. Also, the Orioles designated reliever Greg Aquino.
Corey, 34, has decent big league stats in 53 career innings but could never hold a job. Aquino, 30, has been done in by home runs, walks, and injuries in his career. He did manage to close for the D’Backs in ’04.
