Red Sox decline option on Matt Thornton


In one of the most obvious decisions of the winter, the Boston Red Sox declined the option of left handed reliever Matt Thronton.

Acquired in a trade with the Chicago White Sox, Thornton compiled a 3.74 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 30/15 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings of work.

Rather than collecting $6 million for the 2014 season, the Red Sox will pay Thornton a $1 million buyout.
