Baseball America listed only one recent transaction for the Boston Red Sox last week, as old friend Tommy Hottovy decided to remain with the Sox organization.
Hottovy, 29, a veterans of all or parts of five Sea Dogs seasons, was a minor league free agent after last year. Hottovy, a left-hander, was drafted by Boston in 2004, in the fourth round out of Wichita State. He has battled injuries to finally reach Triple-A last year as a reliever.
Hottovy will be vying with a crowd for a Triple-A spot again.
One Yankees note: Now that Andy Pettitte has announced his retirement, New York's rotation looks thin. Which brings New Yorkers back to the debate about the role of Joba Chamberlain. Should he become a starter again? See the Daily News story.Tweet
