Red Sox designate Edward Mujica for assignment

he Red Sox have designated reliever Edward Mujica for assignment, according to a major league source.

The 31-year-old is 1-1 with a 4.61 ERA in 11 games and 13 2/3 innings this year with eight strikeouts and three walks. Opponents are hitting .294 with a .345 OBP and .490 slugging mark (along with three homers) against him.


While the corresponding roster move isn’t clear, the fact that the Red Sox had righthander Matt Barnes appear out of the bullpen for Triple A Pawtucket on Wednesday in Toledo – having been scratched from his scheduled Thursday start – suggests the Sox may be laying the groundwork to add him as a potential swing-and-miss power arm to their late-innings mix.

Mujica is owed $4.75 million this year.
