Red Sox cut Andrew Bailey, Ryan Kalish

Right-hander Andrew Bailey and outfielder Ryan Kalish were cut

loose by the Boston Red Sox, who failed to offer 2014 contracts by

Monday night’s deadline.

The 29-year-old Bailey was 3-1 with a 3.77 ERA and eight saves

in 13 chances for the World Series champions, making 30 appearances

before season-ending shoulder surgery on July 24. He was limited to

19 games in 2012, the first season after the Red Sox acquired him

from Oakland.

Bailey made $4.1 million, and by letting him go free the Red Sox

could sign him without the 20 percent maximum cut rule


The 25-year-old Kalish missed the entire season due to a right

shoulder operation in January and cervical fusion surgery in

August. He hit .243 with four homers, 29 RBIs and 13 steals for the

Red Sox in 2010 and 2012.

Among those offered contracts were right-handers Burke Badenhop

and Junichi Tazawa; first baseman-outfielder Mike Carp; and

left-handers Andrew Miller and Franklin Morales.
