The Boston Red Sox announced Friday that they added infielder / outfielder Chase d’Arnaud to the 25-man roster and also rose from Triple-A Pawtucket to right-hander Ben Taylor.
To make room on the roster, left-hander Robbie Ross Jr. and infielder Steve Selsky were sent to Pawtucket.
The announcements were made by Dave Dombrowski, the team’s baseball president.
D’Arnaud, 27, was taken by Boston’s Braves waivers on Thursday. He played 11 games with Atlanta this season and went 8-3 with a pair of tickets. As a Major League starting hitter, he hit 37-11 (.297) for life, with a .381 base percentage.
Taylor, 24, had started the season with the Red Sox in the majors, despite not having pitched past Double-A before this year. In four games with Boston, the right has 1.59 ERA, plus seven strikeouts and three tickets. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Taylor is the only Red Sox player since 1961 who began his Major League career by striking out the first three batters he faced.
