Sox Notes: Cash re-acquired from Astros; Delcarmen headed to DL

* The Boston Red Sox today re-acquired catcher Kevin Cash from the Houston Astros in exchange for infielder Angel Sanchez. The 32-year-old Cash appeared in 19 games behind the plate (18 starts) for Houston this season. He hit .204 (11-for-54) with two home runs and four RBI before being designated for assignment on June 22 and outrighted to Triple-A Round Rock. He returns for his second stint with Boston after hitting .207 over 73 games with the Sox in 2007-08. Major League sources tell WBZ’s Dan Roche that catcher Jason Varitek will be out 4-6 weeks with a broken foot/leg. This is the likely corresponding move for the injury.

MLB sources also tell Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe that Red Sox righthander Manny Delcarmen will be placed on the disabled list with a right forearm strain. The corresponding move is to be determined, but right-handers Robert Manuel and Fernando Cabrera are the likely candidates.

Sox Summary: Sox fall to Astros and Rays in split squad twinbill

Posted by Joshua Kummins on March 16, 2010

The Red Sox have had a very tough day, as they fell to the Houston Astros, 3-0 on Tuesday afternoon, before the other squad was also shutout, 7-0 by the Tampa Bay Rays in the evening.

In the day game, the Red Sox got four hits from as many players. Jason Varitek went 1-for-2 to help lead the offense. Jon Lester was superb in four innings, as he gave up just three hits and an earned run, while walking two and striking out a pair as well.

David Ortiz finished 2-for-2 in the nightcap for the Red Sox, while Mike Cameron also collected a hit in two at bats. Felix Doubront also had a successful start in the loss, as he tossed three shutout innings in which he allowed just a single hit and a walk, while fanning one Ray.

The Red Sox re-unite and don the green caps on Wednesday, as they welcome Jason Bay and the New York Mets to City of Palms Park for a St. Patrick’s Day matinee that will be televised on NESN and broadcast on WEEI.
