John Smoltz

WEEI.com reports that the Red Sox have designated John Smoltz for assignment, effectively cutting him from the team. The future Hall of Famer ends his inglorious Boston career with a 2-5 record and an 8.33 ERA in eight starts after signing a one-year, $5.5 million base contract, plus roster bonuses.

The Red Sox also promoted pitcher Junichi Tazawa from AAA Pawtucket, and acquired infielder Chris Woodward from Seattle. To clear roster room, pitcher Billy Traber was also designated for assignment.
