Jonathan Herrera will not be among the Boston Red Sox’s September call-ups.
Herrera, who was demoted to Triple-A Pawtucket at the beginning of July, will miss the remainder of the 2014 season because of surgery to remove bone chips in his elbow.[tweet https://twitter.com/alexspeier/status/501463443648831488 align=’center’]
Herrera, who was acquired from the Colorado Rockies over the offseason in exchange for pitchers Franklin Morales and Chris Martin, hit .233 with a .307 on-base percentage in 42 games with Boston before being shipped to Triple-A. The 29-year-old utilityman hit .309 in 13 games with the PawSox.
Herrera figured to rejoin Boston when rosters expand Sept. 1, but that obviously will no longer be the case.
