Red Sox Designate 10-Season Veteran for Assignment

The Boston Red Sox claimed Caleb Hamilton off of waivers from the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday and, as a result, needed to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. 

That left Abraham Almonte as the odd man out, as the Red Sox have designated him for assignment.
Almonte probably won't be claimed off waivers and will likely wind up as a free agent this winter. 

The thirty-three-year-old slashed .257/.297/.697, with one home run, two RBIs, one stolen base and seven runs scored over 35 at-bats. 

Almonte was better in the minors this season, slashing .293/.417/.951, with 18 home runs, 66 RBIs, six stolen bases and 66 runs scored across 294 at-bats. 

Almonte is a 10-year veteran, having played with the Seattle Mariners, San Diego Padres, Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Royals, Arizona Diamondbacks, Atlanta Braves and the Boston Red Sox.
