Thought this pair of transactions was interesting, given that they include Casey and how far past their prime both of these players are.


So long, Julian

The Red Sox today activated first baseman Sean Casey today from the disabled list. To make room for Casey, the team designated pitcher Julian Tavarez for assignment. The team now has 10 days to either work out a trade for Tavarez or grant him his outright release.

As of yesterday, the Red Sox had still been talking with the Rockies about a deal for Tavarez, who is 0-1 with a 6.39 ERA after he allowed an unearned run in 1 1/3 innings last night.
