By Michael Silverman | [email protected] | Boston HeraldJuly 15, 2019 at 2:32 pm The Red Sox rid themselves of underperforming infielder Eduardo Nunez this afternoon, designating for assignment the 32-year-old veteran who made significant contributions to the team in the second half of 2017 when he was acquired in a trade but whose production tailed off the last season and a half. This season, Nunez appeared in 60 games and over 167 at-bats, he hit two home runs and hit .228/.243/.305. Defensively, he was sub-par at second base. Better at third base, he was not needed there with the emergence of Rafael Devers this season. Nunez is now off the 40-man roster, and the club has seven days to either trade him or place him on irrevocable waivers. Nunez was in the final year of a two-year deal worth $8 million. In addition to the Nunez move, the club optioned struggling right-hander Hector Velazquez to Pawtucket (AAA). The club recalled first baseman Sam Travis and right-hander Ryan Weber from Pawtucket to take the place of Nunez and Vazquez on the Red Sox’ 25-man roster.
