Robert Coello Designated For Assignment

The other shoe has fallen in the Alfredo Aceves acquisition. According to Scott Lauber, Robert Coello was the odd-man out, and has been designated for assignment to make room for the team's newest acquisition.

Coello, 26, made his Major League debut last year after a year which had seen him move from Double-A to Triple-A, striking out eleven batters per nine innings along the way. His time in the majors was short and unsuccessful, lasting under six innings during which he accumulated a 4.76 ERA. 

By far his most...memorable outing came in his first game on September 6 against the Rays. With the Sox leading 11-2, Coello allowed three singles and then walked in three straight runs, recording only one out in the process. 

With that sort of game on his resume, it's not at unlikely that Coello will clear waivers. Of course, with so many mediocre teams out there looking to take a shot on a big strikeout guy, it's quite possible someone will snatch him up. Either way, it's no great loss for the Red Sox this year, as Coello didn't likely stand much of a chance to break camp with the Major League team.
