Major league sources confirmed a report by NBC Sports Boston that the Red Sox placed lefthander Henry Owens on waivers. The 25-year-old former supplemental first-round pick has been ineffective for several years because of control problems and last season was demoted to Double A.
With the 40-man roster full, the Sox will likely need several spots as they acquire players this offseason.
Colorado Rockies righthander Chad Bettis won the Tony Conigliaro Award, which is given by the Red Sox to a major leaguer who has overcome adversity. Bettis returned from cancer treatments last season and pitched in nine games. The award will be given at the Boston BBWAA dinner Jan. 18 . . . The Christmas at Fenway event will be Dec. 16. Registration runs through Monday at noon on redsox.com. Select tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on the 16th, also through the website or by calling 877-REDSOX9.
