The Red Sox announced they released infielder Eduardo Nunez, making him a free agent after designating him for assignment Monday.
Nunez is now free to sign with any team for a prorated portion of the major-league minimum salary. The Sox were unable to find a trading partner for him since cutting him earlier in the week.
Nunez played 225 games over the last three seasons and was, at times, an important piece of Boston’s roster. He has struggled this season though, hitting .228/.243/.305 with two homers in 60 games while losing favor due to the emergence of second baseman Marco Hernandez and the steadiness of breakout star Rafael Devers at third base.
