Maxwell signed a minor league contract with the Red Sox on Friday, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell was released by the Marlins on Tuesday after posting a .227 batting average this spring. There isn't a spot for him on the major league roster, so he'll likely head to Triple-A Pawtucket to act as organizational outfield depth.

Maxwell has been granted his release from the Marlins, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coming off a poor season with San Francisco, the 32-year-old Maxwell posted a .227/.320/.545 slash line in 22 at-bats in the Grapefruit League this spring. He'll likely re-sign with the Marlins in a few days if he can't locate a team that wants him on the Opening Day roster.

Maxwell agreed to a minor league contract with the Marlins on Monday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell struggled mightily at the plate with the Giants this season, slashing .209/.275/.341 in 100 games, leading to his eventual removal from the team's 40-man roster in September. He has never enjoyed too much success at the major league level outside of slugging 18 homers in 2012, but he could have a chance to make the big league roster out of spring training.

Maxwell was designated for assignment by the Giants on Tuesday, Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is pretty surprising to see, as Maxwell has spent the entire season to this point on the active roster, but apparently the Giants have decided the 31-year-old's glove isn't enough to compensate for his bat (.209/.275/.341). Outfielders Angel Pagan and Alejandro De Aza were both added to the team's expanded September roster.

Maxwell entered Saturday's game after Nori Aoki left with a leg injury. He went 1-for-4 with a two-run shot in the win over the Dodgers.

The long ball was Maxwell's sixth of the season. He could see a few extra starts if Aoki is forced to miss any action, making him an intriguing option in daily fantasy leagues, but probably best left on waivers in standard leagues.

Maxwell is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Jarrett Parker will take over in right field as Maxwell sits after starting four straight games in place of Hunter Pence (wrist). With Pence landing on the DL on Friday and Gregor Blanco out with a concussion, the door is open for Maxwell to continue seeing regular starts. He's just 4-for-23 so far this month but two of those hits have left the yard.

Maxwell went 2-for-4 with a two-run shot in Friday's win over the Phillies.

Maxwell had been relegated to a bench role when Hunter Pence returned from the disabled list, but he could see a couple of starts this weekend with Pence experiencing tendinitis in his left wrist. He is out of the lineup Saturday, but could see a start Sunday if Pence is forced to miss that game.

Maxwell is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times reports.

Maxwell saw regular playing time to start the season, but with Hunter Pence back in action for the Giants, Maxwell has returned to part-time duty. After sitting out each of the past two games, he'll play left field and bat fifth Wednesday.

Maxwell is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds, according to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News.

Maxwell has started every game but one in right field since Apr. 21, but his days of regular playing time have come to a close with Hunter Pence back on the major league roster. Maxwell, who has three home runs and 16 RBI in 33 games this season, figures to start primarily against left-handed pitchers moving forward.
