See Ya Mike Cameron

Mike Cameron has been designated for assignment.

This actually makes me kind of sad. I really liked Mike Cameron, but it was clear he was not the player he once was. He also dealt with a lot of injuries in his brief time with the Red Sox. Cameron was not expected to be a starter, but he was supposed to get a lot of at-bats, platooning with J.D. Drew and Jacoby Ellsbury on occasion. But last year, in his first year in Boston, he only made it into 48 games, hitting .259/.328/.401/.729 with only four home runs. This year, it was worse, hitting .149/.212/.266/.477 with three home runs in 33 games.

The Red Sox have ten days to trade or release Cameron. Here's hoping he is traded.

Yamaico Navarro was recalled to take his place.
