Red Sox announce roster moves

November 18th, 2023

BOSTON, MA—The Boston Red Sox today announced the following roster moves:

  • Acquired right-handed pitcher Isaiah Campbell from the Seattle Mariners, in exchange for infielder Luis Urías.
  • The club will not tender a 2024 contract to right-handed pitcher Wyatt Mills. As a result, Mills will become a free agent.
  • Boston will tender 2024 contracts to all 29 remaining unsigned players on their Major League roster. Eight players are already under contract for 2024: Rafael Devers, Kenley Jansen, Chris Martin, Rob Refsnyder, Chris Sale, Trevor Story, Garrett Whitlock, and Masataka Yoshida.

The Red Sox’ 40-man roster is now at 37.

Campbell, 26, went 4-1 with one save, a 2.83 ERA (9 ER/28.2 IP), a .210 opponent batting average, and 33 strikeouts in 27 games for the Mariners during 2023, his Major League debut. The right-hander was one of eight rookies last season to make at least 25 appearances and post an ERA below 3.00. He owns a 2.01 ERA (20 ER/89.2 IP) in 61 career minor league games (four starts), including a 2.63 ERA (8 ER/24.0 IP) in 23 games for Double-A Arkansas in 2023. The Portugal native was selected by Seattle in Competitive Balance Round B of the 2019 First-Year Player Draft out of the University of Arkansas, where he earned a degree in criminal justice.

Urías, 26, was acquired from the Milwaukee Brewers on August 1, 2023 and played in 32 games for the Red Sox, batting .225 (20-for-89) with 13 runs scored, four doubles, two home runs, and 13 RBI. The right-handed hitter played in 52 Major League games overall during 2023, appearing in 39 at second base and 19 at third base. Originally signed as a non-drafted free agent by the San Diego Padres on December 27, 2013, the Mexico native has batted .234 (331-for-1,412) with 192 runs scored, 48 home runs, and 180 RBI in 445 games with San Diego (2018-19), Milwaukee (2020-23), and Boston (2023).
