Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Boston Red Sox's relationship with Juan Francisco is over after 13 days.
The Red Sox said Tuesday they would not tender a contract to the infielder, who was claimed off waivers from Toronto on Nov. 19 and then designated for assignment last Tuesday when Boston landed star free agents Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval.
Francisco, 27, spent this past season with the Toronto Blue Jays after being released by the Milwaukee Brewers in March.
In 320 plate appearances split between first base, third base and designated hitter, Francisco batted .220 with 16 home runs and 34 total extra-base hits, mostly against right-handed pitching.
In 404 career games over six seasons for Cincinnati, Atlanta, Milwaukee and Toronto, Francisco has batted .236 with a .297 on-base percentage and 48 homers.
