Here are the day’s minor moves:
- Righty Matt Buschmann has triggered the opt-out clause in his deal with the Rays, Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports on Twitter. While the club has two days to determine whether to add him to the big league roster, Olney indicates that Buschmann may be moving on. He says that the Red Sox are the likeliest team to end up adding him, though the Dodgers may also have interest. Buschmann, 31, has never appeared in the majors, but has thrown over 500 innings at both the Double-A and Triple-A levels. This year, he has worked to a 3.89 ERA in 78 2/3 frames at Durham with 7.2 K/9 against 3.3 BB/9.
- Korea’s LG Twins have purchased the rights to infielder Luis Jimenez from the Red Sox, the team announced (via Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe, on Twitter). The 27-year-old third baseman saw brief time this year with the Sox and the Brewers. Over 168 total big league plate appearances in his career, Jimenez has slashed .217/.253/.268. He has scuffled this year in limited action at Triple-A, but has strong lifetime numbers at that level: .288/.319/.475 with 43 home runs over nearly 1,300 turns at bat over four seasons.
