Red Sox Have Officially Released Jhonny Peralta

Not surprisingly, the Red Sox announced this afternoon that they have released IF Jhonny Peralta. Don't be surprised if the release of Pablo Sandoval is soon to follow. Releasing Peralta also frees up a roster spot at AAA Pawtucket—which will very likely be filled by #1 prospect Rafael Devers. One of three scenarios will come to fruition soon: a trade for a veteran third-baseman, an on-going "platoon" of Deven Marrero/Tzu-Wei Lin/Brock Holt or the elevation of Devers. Stay tuned!
