This comes as a surprise, since the Sox signed Douigie Fresh to a 1-year deal just this past winter. Why bother if you planned on cutting him in the spring?
Is George Kottaras' .538 spring BA the reason?
Kevin Cash, he of the .167 ML BA in '07, is more likely to fill in, but the Sox also have minor league veteran Dusty Brown in camp and he's batting .600 this spring...
Or could the Sox be making room for some new players due to a trade for Coco Crisp...?
