The Red Sox optioned 2B Kevin Frandsen and catcher Dusty Brown to Triple-A Pawtucket and reassigned infielder Jorge Jimenez and catcher Gustavo Molina to minor league camp Monday.
The Marlins sent outfielder Jai Miller, lefty reliever Taylor Tankersley, right-hander Cristhian Martinez, RHP Kasey Olenberger, C Vinny Rottino, infielder Danny Richar and outfielder Scott Cousins to the minors Saturday. Also, Rule-5 third baseman Jorge Jimenez was returned to the Boston Red Sox.
The Palm Beach Post reports that Marlins 3B Jorge Jimenez is firmly in the mix for the third base job. "He swings the bat. He's a solid third baseman. He's got a plus-plus arm," manager Fredi Gonzalez said Tuesday.
On Thursday, the Astros sent Jorge Jimenez to the Marlins to complete the Matt Lindstrom. Jimenez was originally selected by the Astros from the Boston Red Sox organization in the winter meeting draft.
