Red Sox release third baseman Jhonny Peralta

The Boston Red Sox have released third baseman Jhonny Peralta.

What It Means:

Peralta was signed to a minor-league deal by the Red Sox on June 23, but struggled in Triple-A, hitting just .200 in 41 plate appearances. The 35-year-old started the season with St. Louis Cardinals but was released on June 13. This could be the end of the road in Peralta's 15 year MLB career.

Peralta slashed .204/259/.204 with a .214 wOBA in 58 plate appearances with the Cardinals this season.
