On Sunday the Red Sox claimed infielder Luis Jimenez after the 27-year-old was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Saturday. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Red Sox transferred catcher Ryan Hanigan to the 60-day disabled list after having surgery Saturday on his fractured finger. On Saturday, manager John Farrell indicated it was unlikely Hanigan would be able to return prior to the All-Star break. Jimenez appeared in 15 games for Milwaukee this season, going 1-for-15 with a run scored and a walk.  Both of his starts came at third base (seven total games) and he also appeared defensively at second base once. He's been in the league for three seasons, his first two coming with the Angels. Lifetime, over 67 games, he's a .218/.255/.269 hitter. He's coming off a career year at Class AAA Salt Lake in 2014, hitting .286 with 21 home runs and 76 runs batted in. He does not have any options remaining. For more Red Sox news, check out
