Mike Cameron was released by the Boston Red Sox on Thursday, telling The Boston Globe that the move was made because his part-time role resulted in his poor performance on the field.
"I need to sort some things out," he said. "But if all goes as planned, I'll be back playing. I haven't played much this year. Rest assured I'll be back. People think Father Time has got me. But it wasn't Father Time. It was not getting much of a chance to go out there and run around and play. It was a new experience [in Boston], but it's all good." (via WEEI)
