White Sox signed LHP Alan Embree to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Charlotte.

Well, that didn't take long. Embree, 40, was designated for assignment on May 1 by the Red Sox and elected to become a free agent on May 5. He'll try to work on some things at Triple-A Charlotte and could join the White Sox in a few weeks if everything goes well down on the farm.

Alan Embree has elected to become a free agent.

The left-hander was designated for assignment over the weekend so that the Red Sox could add starter Daisuke Matsuzaka to the 25-man roster. Embree, 40, had a 3.68 ERA in eight appearances at Triple-A.

Red Sox designated LHP Alan Embree for assignment.

Embree was cleared to make room on the roster for Daisuke Matsuzaka. The 40-year-old southpaw didn't throw a pitch during his brief stint with the Red Sox. He'll try to latch on with another organization.

Red Sox purchased the contract of LHP Alan Embree from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Embree intended to opt out of his minor league contract if he had not been called up by April 30, so the Red Sox obliged. The 40-year-old southpaw compiled a 3.68 ERA over eight appearances with the PawSox.

Alan Embree said Monday that he will opt to become a free agent if the Red Sox do not call him up to the majors this week.

"There's not going to be any extending of the deadline anymore. I've been a good soldier, I did whatever's asked, and I did what it took to get ready," Embree said from Triple-A Pawtucket, where he hasn't allowed a hit, walk or run in his last five outings. But with Tim Wakefield joining the bullpen this week, it's doubtful that the Red Sox will have room.

Alan Embree, who could have opted out of his current contract on April 15 since he wasn't on the major league roster, has pushed that date back to April 30, PawSox broadcaster Dan Hoard reports.

Embree told Hoard that he felt like he needed more work to be ready, but that he was close. With Daisuke Matsuzaka also hoping for a spot in the Red Sox pitching staff, there isn't a clear place for Embree, unless the Sox feel that Daniel Bard--who has struggled this year so far--or another young arm could use daily work in Triple-A. Chances are that Embree will use this time to get his feel back and get ready, but that he will end up pitching for someone besides Boston.

A team source tells Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe that Alan Embree will remain with Triple-A Pawtucket for a few more weeks.

Embree can opt out of his contract on Thursday, but it appears he is amenable to staying in the minors for a little longer. The 40-year-old southpaw has allowed three runs over 2 1/3 innings (11.57 ERA) with Boston's Triple-A affiliate.

Alan Embree said that he plans to accept a minor league assignment to Triple-A Pawtucket.

"I don’t know what’s to think through," said Embree. "They have me until the 15th (of April), regardless. If we decide to go longer, I think that might be something that might on a wait-and-see approach. We’ll see in that window. I knew coming in that it would be a reach to make the roster. Did I want to? Absolutely. Who doesn’t? So, I think it’s just a matter of getting some reps under my belt to see if they want me at that level." The 40-year-old lefty has allowed 11 runs -- 10 earned -- over 2 1/3 innings since he signed a minor league deal earlier this month.

Non-roster left-hander Alan Embree gave up four runs in his inning Wednesday against the Orioles.

Sadly, that lowered his ERA to 38.57. Embree is going to have to head to Triple-A for a little while if he wants to continue his career.

Red Sox signed LHP Alan Embree to a minor league contract.

The deal includes an invite to the major league camp. Embree had a rough year in Colorado, posting a 5.84 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP in just under 25 innings before breaking his leg in July. He turned 40 in January, but the Red Sox believe that he may be able to provide some stability to their bullpen if he's healthy.

Rockies declined RHP Alan Embree's $3 million option for 2010.

The Rockies instead bought out his contract for $250,000. Embree, who turns 40 in January, posted a 5.84 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP in 24 2/3 innings this season before a broken leg ended his season prematurely. He's now a free agent and is allowed to sign with any team that shows him interest.

Alan Embree believes he will return to the Rockies this year.

If I was a betting man, yes," he said. Embree broke his leg in July and was thought to be out for the season, but he has recovered quickly. Rockies manager Jim Tracy said Embree is "a lot further along than I thought he'd be at this point in time." Embree posted a 5.84 ERA in 24 2/3 innings before the injury.

Alan Embree (broken leg) will throw "full throttle" for the first time since suffering the injury.

Embree was thought to be out for the season, but he has recovered fairly quickly. He is wearing a protective strap around his foot to provide extra support for his leg, which now has a metal rod inserted. "I am ready to find out how it feels. It’s time," Embree said. It may be time for Embree to find out, but it's also time for you to ignore this news from a fantasy perspective.

An X-Ray of Alan Embree's broken right leg revealed that the bone is healing.

Previous reports indicated that Embree would miss the rest of the season with the injury, but he still hopes to be able to pitch in September.
