Carter packs his bags

04.22.09 at 11:35 pm ET

While the Red Sox had no announcement, outfielder/first baseman Chris Carter confirmed he was being sent to Triple A Pawtucket following the Sox’ 7-3 win over Minnesota in the teams’ second game of their doubleheader, Wednesday at Fenway Park. With outfielder Rocco Baldelli on the 15-day disabled list, and recently-recalled Jeff Bailey primarily a first baseman, one player who could potentially be recalled is outfielder Jonathan Van Every, who had a grand slam for Pawtucket in his first game back from an ankle injury, Wednesday. Carter was 0 for 5 with a sacrifice fly in his stint with the Sox.

“It’s really the classiest, greatest team I’ve ever been on. I’m just really privileged to be a part of it,” said Carter just after packing his bag in front of his locker. “I’m always grateful. I’ll play baseball anywhere, and to play on what I think is the best team in baseball, and not only on the field, is fantastic. They’re just a great bunch of guys. I always look at the positives. I’ll get more at-bats, so that will be good.”
