MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -The Boston Red Sox designated reliever Julian Tavarez for assignment Monday, clearing room for the return of first baseman Sean Casey.
Tavarez, 35 later this month, was 0-1 with a 6.39 ERA in nine games. The right-hander allowed 18 hits and nine walks in 12 2-3 innings.
The Red Sox have 10 days to trade, release or send Tavarez to the minors. He made his major league debut in 1993, has played for eight teams and first joined the Red Sox in 2006.
Casey was activated from the 15-day disabled list after recovering from a strained right hip. He hurt himself running the bases April 25 and went on a two-game rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket.
Casey is batting .346 with six doubles and eight RBIs in 52 at-bats, plus a .424 on-base percentage.
