The Red Sox announced this afternoon that they have released Carlos Silva. The veteran right-hander signed a minor league deal with Boston over the winter in hopes of competing for a spot in the starting rotation, but he failed to make an appearance this spring due to complications with a preexisting shoulder injury.
Silva signed a minor league deal with the Yankees last April, but was limited to just seven starts between High-A Tampa, Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre due to shoulder woes. The 32-year-old right-hander had a 4.21 ERA over 21 starts with the Cubs in 2010.
