Red Sox designate Jeurys Familia for assignment after reliever allows three runs in 10th against Yankees

The Red Sox designated Jeurys Familia for assignment following Tuesday’s outing in which the righthander allowed three runs (two earned) in the 10th inning.

The Sox signed Familia to a minor league contract after he was released by the Phillies in August. In 11 1/3 innings with the Red Sox, Familia allowed seven earned runs.

On Tuesday, Familia entered the game in the top of the 10th inning with automatic runner Isiah Kiner-Falefa on second base. After Aaron Hicks walked, Familia induced a double play that left Kiner-Falefa on third. An intentional walk to Aaron Judge and a regular walk to Giancarlo Stanton loaded the bases before Gleyber Torres found the gap in right-center to drive in three runs and give the Yankees a 7-4 lead.

The Red Sox rallied for two runs in the bottom of the 10th but could but get the tying run across.

Familia appeared in 10 games for the Red Sox, never pitching more than two full innings. He allowed three runs in his first eight games, but five in the last two.
