Today the Red Sox announced that they had designated infielder Ryan Roberts for assignment and recalled infielder Brock Holt.

Red Sox call up Brock Holt, designate Ryan Roberts for assignment

When the Red Sox signed Ryan Roberts to help man third base in the absence of Will Middlebrooks, they sat on the cusp of a stretch where they’d face five left-handed starters in a 10-day span. Though the Sox went 4-1 in those contests, that was hardly a reflection of Roberts’ performance. The 33-year-old was [...]

Red Sox make a roster move, plus lineup

Just 11 days after they signed him, Ryan Roberts was designated for assignment today, with Brock Holt brought up from Pawtucket (Triple A) to take his place. The Red Sox were hoping to see a little more offense from Roberts  (2-for-19 in eight games) but hope that he clears waivers and becomes part of their minor-league depth. The team acknowledged that Roberts long layoff between the end of spring training and when the team acquired him contributed to his rustiness.

Red Sox recall Brock Holt, DFA Ryan Roberts

The infield gets a makeover with Holt back in Boston and Roberts out of town. The Red Sox have announced that they have recalled infielder Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket, and designated Ryan Roberts for assignment to make room for him on the 25-man roster. It's not unexpected, thanks to Roberts' struggles, but it is welcome given Boston's needs on the offensive side.

Ryan Roberts' Red Sox career could be over soon

Ryan Roberts was brought in to provide some infield insurance in the wake of Will Middlebrooks' absence, but it hasn't gone well, and his time here could be over soon. It's April 18th, and with the Red Sox sitting on a 7-9 record, things obviously haven't gone as planned. Because of the early misfortunates, some conclusions have been jumped to prematurely, using a sample entirely too small to panic about players or units. Everyone knows the samples are too small, but it's hard to avoid being troubled this early in the season, especially when its been as frustrating as this year has been,...

Daily Red Sox Links: Cecchini, Roberts, Victorino

Today's links look at a recent pick up, a delayed call up and whether or not fans should start worrying about the season already. Recently acquired infielder Ryan Roberts was picked up in large part as a utility glove, but as an added bonus it looks like his batting eye improved this spring training, too! Well, not so much his batting eye as his actual eyesight. (Ricky Doyle; NESN.com) Roberts will be filling time for the injured Will Middlebrooks, who himself may be filling time for minor league third base prospect Garin Cecchini. How long is anyone's guess, however, as the team isn't...

Red Sox Notebook: Red Sox sign Ryan Roberts to fill in at third

The Red Sox did not want to allow another game to go by without a right-handed hitting third base replacement for Will Middlebrooks, so they signed Ryan Roberts yesterday.Roberts’ presence will be hard to justify as soon as Middlebrooks comes back, as Jonathan Herrera’s ability to back up at shortstop makes him more valuable than Roberts long term. However, with the Rangers using left-handed starters tonight and tomorrow, the Sox wanted a righty bat.

For Ryan Roberts, ‘crazy journey’ ends with an opportunity with the Red Sox

The past 12 days represented a new and unknown journey for Ryan Roberts. The 33-year-old, entering his ninth season in the majors, found himself without a team to play for when Opening Day rolled around, having opted out of his minor league deal with the Cubs upon learning that he would not make the 25-man [...]
