Sox Option Out Seven More, Bobby Poyner May Stick

Considering the moves the Red Sox made after today's 6-0 win over the World Series Champion Astros, it appears that Bobby Poyner is "poised" to be a lefty out of the Boston bullpen come Opening Day. The team optioned LHPs Robby Scott and Roenis Elias to AAA, along with infielder Tzu-Wei Lin. Backstop Dan Butler, infielder Iván De Jesús Jr., and OFs Rusney Castillo and Aneury Tavárez were sent down to minor league camp. With the trade of Deven Marrero, eight spots have been vacated off the Boston roster—which needs to get down to 25 by Thursday.
