2007 World Champion Boston Red Sox

The Rest of the Roster

The scoop on everyone who played in at least one game for the 2007 Red Sox but did not make the postseason roster. Stats shown are from 2007 with Boston.

Jeff Bailey Jeffrey Todd (Jeff) Bailey, #55
Born: 11/26/78  Height: 6'2"  Weight: 200  Bats: Right  Throws: Right   Position: 1B

After years in the Red Sox system, Bailey was called up for one week in July while Joel Pineiro was on the D.L. He made it into three games, and picked up his first major league hit with a home run in Detroit on July 8.
.111  .111  .444 

Clay Buchholz Clay Daniel Buchholz, #61
Born: 8/14/84  Height: 6'3"  Weight: 190  Bats: Left  Throws: Right   Position: P

Buchholz started the year in Double A, but moved up quickly. He picked up the win in his major league debut, starting the first game of a doubleheader in August. He worked his way into Red Sox lore in his second major league start, when he threw a no-hitter against the Baltmore Orioles on September 1. He made two more appearances before being shut down because of concerns over the number of innings he had pitched in only his second full professional season.
3-1  1.59  22.2  14  10  22 

Royce Clayton Royce Spencer Clayton, #11
Born: 1/2/70  Height: 6'0"  Weight: 175  Bats: Right  Throws: Right   Position: 3B, SS

Clayton was signed by the Red Sox after being released by Toronto, and joined the roster on September 1. He was used mostly as a pinch runner and a defensive replacement at third base, but he also made one start at shortstop.
.000  .000  .000 

Bryan Corey Bryan Scott Corey, #41
Born: 10/21/73  Height: 6'0"  Weight: 170  Bats: Right  Throws: Right   Position: P

Corey spent most of the season in Triple A, and was called up in September. He got the win with a scoreless inning of relief on September 11. He went at least one inning with no runs allowed in seven of his nine appearances.
1-0  1.93  9.2 

Brendan Donnelly Brendan Kevin Donnelly, #53
Born: 7/4/71  Height: 6'3"  Weight: 205  Bats: Right  Throws: Right   Position: P

Donnelly was acquired from the Angels in the off-season in a trade for Phil Seibel. He got the win with 1 1/3 scoreless innings in a Red Sox comeback victory on May 3. He went on the D.L. with forearm soreness in June, and underwent Tommy John surgery in August.
2-1  3.05  27  20.2  19  15 

Kason Gabbard Kason Ronald Gabbard, #61
Born: 4/8/82  Height: 6'3"  Weight: 200  Bats: Left  Throws: Left   Position: P

Gabbard pitched well in a spot start in May, earning the win. He was called up for a month when Curt Schilling went on the D.L., and had his best outing on July 16 with a complete-game four-hit shutout over Kansas City. At the trading deadline, he was sent to Texas as part of the Eric Gagne deal.
2-1  3.05  27  20.2  19  15 

Devern Hansack Devern Brandon Hansack, #46
Born: 2/5/78  Height: 6'2"  Weight: 180  Bats: Right  Throws: Right   Position: P

Hansack was called up in May when Mike Timlin went on the D.L., and pitched once in relief. His next stint was a spot start in the second game of a doubleheader at the end of the month. He made one more appearance, with three innings of relief in September.
0-1  4.70  7.2 

Brandon Moss Brandon Douglas Moss, #44
Born: 9/16/83  Height: 6'0"  Weight: 205  Bats: Left  Throws: Right   Position: LF, RF

Moss was called up for a weekend series in Anaheim in August while Eric Hinske was away attending a funeral. Moss made his major league debut when Manny Ramirez was ejected in the fourth inning of a game, and ended up striking out for the final out of the game with the tying runs on base. Two days later he made his first start and picked up his first major league hit, scoring the go-ahead run in a crucial eighth inning rally. He was called back up in September and got four more starts.
15  25  .280  .379  .440 

David Murphy David Matthew Murphy, #44
Born: 10/18/81  Height: 6'4"  Weight: 192  Bats: Left  Throws: Left   Position: LF, RF

Murphy was called up for one weekend in June when Curt Schilling first went on the D.L. He got into three games, hit a triple, and scored a run. At the end of July, he was traded to the Texas Rangers as part of the trade for Eric Gagne.
.500  .500  1.500 

Wily Mo Pena Wily Modesto (Wily Mo) Peña, #22
Born: 1/23/82 Height: 6'3" Weight: 215 Bats: Right Throws: Right Position: RF, LF, CF

Peña saw a lot of playing time in right field. He hit a grand slam in Baltimore in April, and had a 4-for-5 game with two doubles and a homer in Cleveland in July. In August he was traded to the Washington Nationals for a player to be named later (minor leaguer Chris Carter).
73  156  18  34  17  14  58  .218  .291  .385 

Joel Pineiro Joel Alberto Piñeiro, #36
Born: 9/25/78  Height: 6'1"  Weight: 180  Bats: Right  Throws: Right   Position: P

Piñeiro was primarily a starter in his career with the Seattle Mariners, but the Red Sox signed him in the off-season with the hopes that he could fill the closer role. Once Jonathan Papelbon was moved back to the bullpen, Piñeiro took over long relief duties. He struck out three in a perfect 1 2/3-inning stint in Texas during a one-run victory in May, earning the win. At the end of July, he was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals for a player to be named later (minor leaguer Sean Danielson).
1-1  5.03  31  34.0  41  20  19  14  20 

J.C. Romero Juan Carlos (J.C.) Romero, #32
Born: 6/4/76  Height: 5'11"  Weight: 195  Bats: Switch  Throws: Left   Position: P

Romero was signed by the Red Sox as a free agent in the off-season, and appeared in 23 games. He got the win in the "Mother's Day Miracle" game when the Red Sox rallied with six runs in the ninth inning to overcome a five-run deficit. He was released in June and signed with the Philadelphia Phillies for the remainder of the season.
1-0  3.15  23  20.0  24  15  11 

Julian Tavarez Julian Carmen Tavarez, #51
Born: 5/22/73  Height: 6'2"  Weight: 195  Bats: Left  Throws: Right   Position: P

Tavarez started the year in the rotation, and pitched well despite getting matched up against other teams' aces like Roy Halladay, Johan Santana, Dan Haren, and Chien-Ming Wang. His best start was May 17 against Detroit, when he went seven innings in a 2-1 win. When Jon Lester returned to the rotation, Tavarez went to the pen, where he remained flexible enough to make a few more spot starts whenever needed.
7-11  5.15  34  23  134.2  151  89  77  14  51  77
