The Red Sox have designated Jose De La Torre for assignment, according to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald (on Twitter). The move will allow Boston to reinstate Clay Buchholz to the club's 40-man roster.
De La Torre, 28 in October, allowed eight runs in seven relief appearances for the Red Sox this season. The right-hander fared much better in Triple-A Pawtucket, posting a 2.75 ERA with 10.1 K/9 and 4.6 BB/9 in 34 relief outings. De La Torre has had similarly strong numbers – 2.58 ERA with 10 K/9 and 4 BB/9 -across parts of four Triple-A seasons with the Indians and Red Sox's affiliates.
