Monday was an off day for everyone but Chaim Bloom, as the Red Sox stayed busy with four separate roster moves.
Bloom’s maneuvering began with the optioning of both Franchy Cordero and Connor Wong down to Triple-A Worcester.
Recalled from Worcester late last month after thriving and rediscovering his swing in the minors, Cordero appeared in 13 games and hit .219 (7-for-32) for the Red Sox over that stretch. It started off somewhat promising, too, but Cordero has struggled for the last week and a half, with just one hit in his last 14 at bats. Overall, the 26-year-old lefty bat has hit .189 with one homer and nine RBIs in 47 games with the Red Sox.
Wong, meanwhile, heads back to AAA after he was recalled upon Josh Taylor’s move to the COVID-19 list over the weekend.
