The Red Sox have announced that catcher Juan Centeno was outrighted from the 40-man roster. He elected free agency.
Soon to reach his 30th birthday, Centeno will go out searching for the best possible opportunity this winter. He has appeared in the bigs in each of the past seven seasons, but still has only appeared in 118 games in total.
Centeno offers a relatively rare left-handed bat from the catching position, but hasn’t hit much in his opportunities. In 371 plate appearances in the majors, he carries a .223/.278/.323 batting line. Centeno slashed .248/.321/.350 in his 301 Triple-A plate appearances this season.
