Red Sox release right-hander Darin Gillies

The Red Sox released right-hander Darin Gillies from his minor-league contract on Sunday, per MiLB.com’s transactions log.

A former 10th-round draft pick of the Mariners out of Arizona State University in 2015, Gillies originally signed a minors pact with the Sox back in March. It included an invite to major-league spring training.

After breaking camp with Double-A Portland, Gillies made four appearances for the Sea Dogs and earned a promotion to Triple-A Worcester on April 21. The 29-year-old then made six appearances for the WooSox before being demoted on May 17 as part of a series of roster moves that saw pitching prospects Brayan Bello and A.J. Politi get promoted to Worcester.

Gillies’ second stint with Portland lasted less than two weeks. All told, the hard-throwing righty posted a 16.36 ERA and 6.13 FIP with 12 strikeouts to nine walks over 12 relief outings (11 innings) between the Sea Dogs and WooSox in 2022.
