BOSTON, MA – The Boston Red Sox optioned infielder Jonathan Araúz to Triple-A Worcester following yesterday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels.
Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom made the announcement.
Araúz, 22, appeared in four games with Boston after being recalled from Worcester on May 9. The switch-hitter made two starts—both at shortstop—and entered two games as a pinch-hitter, going 2-for-8 with two walks, a double, two runs scored, and an RBI. In five games with Worcester this season, Araúz is 3-for-15 (.200) with one walk.
