Dominguez signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox on Tuesday that includes an invitation to spring training, KSTP's Darren Wolfson reports. Boston continues to bring aboard inexpensive fall-back options at third base in case Pablo Sandoval is not up to the task, as they already selected Josh Rutledge in the Rule 5 draft last week. Dominguez posted a .269/.315/.421 slash line with 18 home runs in 127 games at Triple-A in the Blue Jays' system last season. He has a career .231/.273/.371 line in 1,369 MLB plate appearances.
Dominguez was designated for assignment Friday, Shi Davidi of SportsNet reports. In an effort to make room for Matt Dermody on the 40-man roster, Dominguez was designated for assignment. Dominguez went 0-for-11 over five games with the Blue Jays this season and posted a .272/.317/.427 line at Buffalo.
Dominguez cleared waivers Wednesday and was sent to Triple-A Buffalo, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports. Dominguez was designated for assignment Tuesday and placed on optional waivers, but the 26-year-old will remain within the organization. He's hit well thus far with the Triple-A club this year, so Dominguez could get another call-up again at some point this season.
Dominguez was designated for assignment Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports. Dominguez failed to record a hit in four at bats since last being recalled from Triple-A Buffalo after being called upon to serve as temporary relief with Josh Donaldson nursing a thumb injury. The 26-year-old is slashing a solid .287/.333/.419 in the minors this season and could see another stint in the majors if the parent club finds themselves in need of infield depth.
Dominguez was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo and will start at third base and hit eighth in the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox, Barry Davis of Sportsnet reports. Everyday third baseman Josh Donaldson will be limited to DH duties Sunday, so the Blue Jays brought Dominguez aboard to provide some more depth at the hot corner. It could still be a few more days before Donaldson is cleared to resume fielding, so Dominguez may be in position to make multiple starts during his time with the Jays. The 26-year-old was slashing .287/.333/.419 with five homers across 167 at-bats at Triple-A.
