Drew On Roster; DiNardo Claimed By A's

J.D. Drew was finally added to the 40-man roster -- and lefty Lenny DiNardo was claimed off waivers by the Oakland A's and added to their major league roster.

DiNardo, 27, was on the DL last season for three months with neck problems and posted a 7.85 ERA in 13 games for the Red Sox. Boston has three lefties on its roster (Javier Lopez, Hideki Okajima, J.C. Romero) and DiNardo was never much of a LOOGY anyway. He should many more opportunities to pitch in Oakland.

Goodbye and best wishes to another member of the 2004 Red Sox. (More here.)
