#RedSox Claim Matt Fox, No Word on Scott Wolf, Neve Campbell

From the Red Sox via press release:

The Boston Red Sox today claimed right-handed pitcher Matt Fox off waivers from the Minnesota Twins. To make room for Fox on the 40-man roster, the club transferred outfielder Mike Cameron to the 60-day disabled list. The Red Sox active Major League roster is now at 34 players.

The announcement was made by Executive Vice President/General Manager Theo Epstein.

Fox, 27, made his Major League debut with a start for the Twins on Friday, allowing two runs in a 5.2-inning no-decision against the Rangers. The right-hander also appeared in 35 games (21 starts) for Minnesota’s Triple-A Rochester affiliate in 2010 and went 6-9 while pacing Red Wings starters with a 3.95 ERA (54 ER/123.0 IP) and recording a team-high 104 strikeouts. A supplemental first round selection by Minnesota in the 2004 First-Year Player Draft, Fox has accumulated a 35-28 record with three saves and a 3.71 ERA (223 ER/541.0 IP) in 145 games (80 starts) over six minor league seasons in the Twins farm system.

Cameron, 37, was placed on the 15-day disabled list on August 2 (retroactive to July 31) with a lower abdominal strain. He hit .259 (42-for-162) with 11 doubles, four home runs, 15 RBI, 24 runs scored and 14 walks in 48 games with the Red Sox this season. He also missed 34 games from April 19 to May 24 on the 15-day disabled list with a lower abdominal strain.
