— A Timely Look at Transactions as They Happen

Boston Red Sox - Purchased Gonzalez
Boston Red Sox - Purchased the contract of P Jeremi Gonzalez; designated 1B Dave McCarty for assignment; signed 1B John Olerud to a minor-league contract.
Jeremi Gonzalez is probably the 2nd-best option as a fill-in starter (I’d prefer Abe Alvarez) and should be a bit above replacement level. Don’t look for him to eat too many innings; Gonzalez has missed about half of the last decade due to arm problems and really needs to be on a short leash.
This has to be the 5th time McCarty has been DFAed by the Red Sox over the last few years. He won’t get claimed and won’t ask for free agency; he’s simply in that Hansen/Magadan part of his career where he gets a few at-bats a year on his way to a coaching job.
Olerud should be the backup 1B in the not-too-distant future, which will send Kevin Youkilis down and keep Petagine in the minors when he’s healthy.
