Boston Red Sox - PlayerWatch
RHP Michael Olmsted, a non-roster invitee to the Milwaukee Brewers camp, was released after posting a 6.75 ERA in two exhibition outings. Olmsted, who had been removed from the 40-man roster after a rough 2013 in the minors, signed a minor league deal with Boston after being released.
RHP Jake Peavy made his Grapefruit League debut March 13, and he threw three-plus innings of one-run ball against the Minnesota Twins. Peavy allowed two hits and two walks, and he struck out two. "Given it was his first outing in this setting, I thought he threw the ball very well," manager John Farrell said, according to the Boston Globe. "It was good to see him get challenged in that way." Peavy missed the first two weeks of exhibition action after he sustained minor nerve damage when he cut through a tendon in his left index finger with a fishing knife March 1.
