  • Anthony Varvaro: Will retire from pro baseball

    Varvaro officially retired from professional baseball Monday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

    The 31-year-old was clicking along with a 2.83 ERA and 31 strikeouts over 28.2 innings at Triple-A Pawtucket, but since he wasn't on the Red Sox's 40-man roster, a promotion wasn't forthcoming. Rather than slumming it in the minors or asking for a release, Varvaro has apparently decided to hang up his spikes. The right-hander has appeared in six big-league seasons as a member of three teams, producing a combined 3.23 ERA and 1.28 WHIP across 183.2 innings.

  • Red Sox's Anthony Varvaro: Assigned to minor league camp

    Varvaro was assigned to minor league camp Monday.

    After missing most of the 2015 season with a torn flexor tendon, Varvaro will look to get back on track in 21016, though he'll first have to do so at the minor league level. Varvaro figures to open at Triple-A Pawtucket, which would mark his first minor league action since 2012 as a member of the Braves organization.

  • Anthony Varvaro: Elects free agency

    Varvaro (elbow) elected free agency after being outrighted off the 40-man roster Friday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

    Varvaro missed the majority of the 2015 season after undergoing season-ending surgery for a torn flexor tendon in his right arm in May. He should be ready for the start of the 2016 season though, and figures to find himself on a major league roster wherever he lands.
