The Boston Red Sox announced that they have released Carlos Silva.
The Red Sox had signed Silva to a minor league deal with a base salary of $1mm with tons of incentives.
But Silva developed shoulder inflammation early in Spring Training and was never able to make it into a game before he was released.
Silva last pitched in the Majors in 2010 for the Cubs when the Venezuela native began the season going 8-0 in his first 11 starts. But after the All-Star break he went 1-3 with a 11.12 ERA. He finished the 2010 season with a 11-6 record and a 4.22 ERA in 113 innings throughout 21 starts.
In his career, Silva owns a 70-70 record and a 4.68 ERA.
