The Red Sox claimed right-hander Matt Fox off of waivers from the Twins, the team announced on Thursday.
Fox, 27, made his Major League debut with a start for the Twins on Friday, allowing two runs while pitching 5 2/3 innings and recording a no-decision against the Rangers. The right-hander also appeared in 35 games (21 starts) for Minnesota’s Triple-A Rochester affiliate in 2010 and went 6-9 while pacing Red Wings starters with a 3.95 ERA and recording a team-high 104 strikeouts in 123 innings.
A supplemental first round selection by Minnesota in the 2004 First-Year Player Draft, Fox has accumulated a 35-28 record with three saves and a 3.71 ERA in 145 games (80 starts) over six minor league seasons in the Twins farm system.
To make room for Fox on the 40-man roster, the Red Sox moved outfielder Mike Cameron from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis sounded off on the New York Jets Thursday, suggesting the team boasts too much for a team with no recent hardware. In speaking with the Baltimore and New York media prior to Monday night's season-opener against Rex Ryan's squad, Lewis said there are teams they should be more worried about.
"The bottom line is -- and I'm going to be very careful with this -- we're talking about the Jets like we're talking about the Saints," Lewis said. "That's the Super Bowl champs. Until they play tonight, that's the only people that can be dethroned -- Drew Brees and the Saints, not Mark Sanchez and the Jets.
"All of this 'We're the Miami Heat of football.' If you're the Miami Heat, we got to be the Lakers. We're aiming for multiple rings. But you listen to all this yap,...
