Sox option Brown, outright Bates
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox made a pair of roster moves Monday, one of which will allow for the return of catcher Victor Martinez. The Sox made room for the backstop by optioning catcher Dusty Brown to Triple A Pawtucket. Additionally, the team outrighted first baseman Aaron Bates to Pawtucket, thus removing him from the 40-man roster. 

 

The 28-year-old Brown has hit just .182 in six games with the Red Sox this season. He was needed for stability at the position when both Martinez and Jason Varitek were on the disabled list. 

 

Martinez went on the disabled list on June 28 with a broken bone in his left thumb. He has hit .289 with nine homers and 38 RBI. He has a .344 on-base percentage and made his fourth All-Star team this season.
