The Red Sox outrighted Craig off their 40-man roster Monday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Craig passed through waivers unclaimed, which is surprising for a player that had 97 RBI just two seasons ago, but not surprising for a 30-year-old with a guaranteed $26.5 million left on his contract. Craig reported to Triple-A Pawtucket after being optioned there last week, and he will remain there moving forward.

Craig was optioned to Triple-A on Saturday, the Boston Herald's Jason Mastrodonato reports.

Since Craig had an option remaining he was the choice, rather than designating a player like Daniel Nava for assignment and risking losing him on waivers.

Jackie Bradley has been recalled as a corresponding move, as the Red Sox were set on making some roster moves following Saturday's loss.

Craig started in place of the injured Hanley Ramirez (shoulder), who will travel with the Red Sox for a road trip that kicks off Friday night in Toronto. Ramirez is still considered day-to-day, so this is a good opportunity for Craig to get consistent at-bats.
