Rays claim Day from Red Sox
Posted Jan 9, 2009 by Marc Lancaster

The Rays have claimed right-hander Dewon Day off waivers from the Red Sox.
The 28-year-old split last season between Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte in the White Sox organization. He was a starter with Birmingham, going 1-6 with a 6.61 ERA, but put it together a bit better working out of the bullpen in Charlotte. He was 0-3 with a 4.56 ERA in 21 relief appearances there, walking six and striking out 25 in 23 2/3 innings.
Day, a Southern University product, has some big-league time to his credit, having compiled an 11.25 ERA in 13 relief appearances for the White Sox in 2007.
Boston had claimed him off waivers from Chicago in October. By claiming him from the Red Sox, the Rays’ 40-man roster is now full.
Updating: In case you’re interested, Day does have options remaining. He’ll be used as a reliever.
