Boston Red Sox Release Carlos Silva

The Boston Red Sox have announced that they have released starting pitcher Carlos Silva. Silva was in contention for the fourth or fifth rotation spot before dropping out of the contest with right shoulder inflammation.

The Red Sox signed Silva earlier in the off season as a part of trying to re structure their rotation, which will be without the injured John Lackey and Daisuke Matsuzaka this season. The starting rotation also struggled when healthy at the end of last season, resulting in the collapse of September. Currently Daniel Bard, Andrew Miller and Felix Doubront are the leading candidates for that spot.

Last season Silva spent most of his time in the minors, the season before with the Chicago Cubs and the Seattle Mariners in the year before. Silva was signed as a free agent. He could latch onto another team that needs pitching, but with his injury, that could be unlikely.
