Sox decline option on Gonzalez

The Red Sox have declined their $6 million option on shortstop Alex Gonzalez for 2010, a major-league source confirmed. As a result, Gonzalez is now eligible for free agency. The news was first reported by boston.com.
 
Despite the decision to decline the shortstop's option and instead pay him a $500,000 buy-out, the Red Sox have expressed some interest in bringing back the 32-year-old at a lower guaranteed salary. Gonzalez hit .284 with a .316 OBP and .453 slugging mark, five homers and 15 RBIs in 44 games for the Sox after Boston acquired him in a trade with the Reds in mid-August, his second stint with the Red Sox (after he spent the 2006 season in Boston). On the year, Gonzalez' combined numbers between the Reds and Red Sox were .238/.275/.355.
