Red Sox release outfielder David Murphy

Following today's game, the Boston Red Sox released outfielder David Murphy.

President of Baseball Operations David Dombrowski made the announcement.

Murphy, 34, played in 15 Grapefruit League games for the Red Sox this spring as a non-roster invitee, including today at JetBlue Park against the Baltimore Orioles. He hit .265 (9-for-34) with six runs scored, three doubles, three RBI, and two walks.

Originally signed by Boston as a first-round selection in the 2003 June Draft, the left-handed batter has appeared in 1,110 major league games with the Red Sox (2006-07), Rangers (2007-13), Indians (2014-15), and Angels (2015), batting .274 (950-for-3,467) with 104 home runs, 203 doubles, and 472 RBI.

With this move, the Red Sox now have 26 players in big league camp, all from the 40-man roster.
