The Red Sox have signed Joey Gathright, who was playing with the independent Yuma Scorpions, and assigned him to Pawtucket. Yuma manager Jose Canseco had the news on his Twitter feed and the Red Sox have confirmed it.

Gathright, 30, played 17 games for the Red Sox in 2009 after being obtained from Baltimore Aug. 29 and was on the playoff roster a pinch runner. The same could be true this year.

Gathright hasn't been in the majors since 2009. He has 80 career steals.
