Morosi on TwitterThe Red Sox are expected to non-tender OF Ryan Sweeney.
Sweeney batted .260/.303/.373 with a .675 OPS in 63 games this past season prior to undergoing surgery to repair a broken pinkie finger. While the Red Sox weren't willing to bring him back for close the $1.75 million salary he made in 2012, he should draw interest from multiple teams in free agency.
per rotoThe Red Sox will not tender a contract to LHP Rich Hill.
The 32-year-old lefty pitched fairly well, posting a 1.83 ERA and 21/11 K/BB ratio over 19 2/3 innings for the Red Sox in 2012. He'll likely catch on as a left-handed specialist with another organization.
