Eduardo Nuñez's career with the Boston Red Sox didn't have the ideal ending, but he has plenty of fond memories to cherish from his time with the historic MLB franchise.
Nuñez delivered a message to Red Sox fans, via ESPN's Marly Rivera, after the team decided to designate him for assignment Monday.
“I’d like to thank all Red Sox fans for all the great moments we shared and the amazing experience of being World Champions. I only have positive things to say about the Red Sox organization, and I know my career will go on.”
Nuñez was acquired by the Red Sox in a trade with the San Francisco Giants in 2017.
Perhaps his most memorable moment in Boston came during Game 1 of the 2018 World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Nuñez hit a three-run pinch hit homer in the seventh inning that secured a series-opening win.
Nuñez was batting .228 with two home runs and 20 RBI in 60 games for the Red Sox before he was DFA'd.
