Allen Craig’s rocky tenure with the Boston Red Sox has hit a new low.

The Red Sox optioned the struggling outfielder to Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday along with reliever Robbie Ross Jr.

Craig, a National League All-Star with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013, is hitting just .135 this season. He’s recorded a total of seven hits in 24 games, and only one of those has gone for extra bases.

Since his trade to Boston at last season’s trade deadline, Craig is batting .130 with two home runs and four RBIs.

Outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. and right-handed knuckleballer Steven Wright were recalled from Pawtucket to fill the open roster spots. Bradley will make his season debut Sunday, starting in right field for the Red Sox’s series finale against the Toronto Blue Jays.
