Young arms optioned

The Red Sox today optioned right-handed pitchers Manny Delcarmen and Craig Hansen to Triple-A Pawtucket. Neither were expected to make the team’s Opening Day roster, though both had stellar springs.

The 22-year-old Hansen was nearly perfect in 10 2/3 spring innings with the Red Sox, giving up no runs and just five hits. He struck out five and walked three. Delcarmen, 24, posted decent numbers as well, a 2.70 ERA in 10 innings with 11 strikeouts and five walks.
