Juan Francisco    3B   Boston Red Sox  (AAA)
The Red Sox designated Francisco for assignment Tuesday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The team had to clear room on the 40-man roster with Hanley Ramirez's signing becoming official, and Francisco was the casualty. A waiver acquisition from Toronto, Francisco ended up spending less than a week in the Red Sox organization, and after he hit just .220/.291/.456 in 2014, the 27-year-old will likely have to settle for another minor league deal this winter.
Alfredo Marte    OF   Los Angeles Angels  (AAA)
