It’s still possible that the Red Sox will be able to work out a deal for Carp in the next 10 days, but in the meantime he’s been removed from the 40-man roster and could be headed for the waiver wire.
Carp hit very well for Boston in a part-time role last season, batting .296 with nine homers, 18 doubles, and an .885 OPS in 243 plate appearances, but he batted just .198 this year. Still, as a 28-year-old left-handed hitter with a lifetime .763 OPS you’d think some team could find room for the first baseman/left fielder on their roster.
