PawSox Roster Moves: July 16, 2012
The PawSox have a variety of roster moves today as they open up a four-game series at McCoy against the Syracuse Chiefs (Nationals):
- Infielder Ryan Dent has been transferred back to Portland. Dent, in his first ever call-up to Triple-A, went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter.
- Reliever Will Latimer has been received from Portland. The left-hander threw between 90-92 during his recent stay with the PawSox where he went 0-2, 4.50 ERA (4 ER/8.0 IP). His latest outing turned out to be his first career start, allowing one run over four innings on July 12 with the Sea Dogs. Before then, Latimer had made 123 career minor league appearances – all in relief.
- After being optioned to make room in Boston for Clay Buchholz, Mauro Gomez is at McCoy and tonight hits fourth and plays first base.
