The Red Sox have granted left-hander Thomas Pannone and first baseman Roberto Ramos their releases from the organization, per the team’s minor-league transactions log.
Both Pannone and Ramos had spent the entirety of the 2022 season with Triple-A Worcester after signing minor-league deals with Boston over the winter.
Pannone was granted his release so that he could sign with the KIA Tigers of the Korean Baseball Organization, according to Joe McDonald of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette. The 28-year-old southpaw out of Rhode Island made 14 appearances (12 starts) for the WooSox this season and posted a 4.57 ERA (3.17 FIP) with 70 strikeouts to just eight walks over 63 innings of work.
Ramos is also likely to sign with a Korean club, per McDonald. The 27-year-old spent the 2020 and 2021 campaigns with the LG Twins and hit 46 home runs over 168 games, so he could possibly return there.
In 39 games with the WooSox, the left-handed hitting Ramos batted just .158/.287/.342 (71 wRC+) with five homers and 16 RBIs across 143 trips to the plate.
