Addition By Subtraction

The Red Sox didn't make any big time moves by the trading deadline, but they did trade disappointing reliever Ramon Ramirez to the San Francisco Giants, and swung a deal for Texas catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

The Sox sent minor leaguers 1B Chris McGuiness, RHP Roman Mendez, a player to be named later and cash considerations to the Rangers for the catcher.

The Jeremy Hermida Era in Boston is over as well, as he was designated for assignment, and promising rookie Ryan Kalish was brought up from Pawtucket and is playing in today's game. Dustin Richardson was also brought up from AAA to take Ramirez' spot in the bullpen.

The Red Sox also said that young pitcher Felix Doubront has been moved from starter to the bullpen at Pawtucket, so he figures to be back in Boston at some point this season in the Red Sox pen.
