The Red Sox optioned Chris Carter to Triple A Pawtucket and will make a corresponding roster move tomorrow, the team announced this afternoon. Carter went hitless in five at-bats after winning a competition in spring training for the final roster spot.

The Red Sox will call up outfielder Jonathan Van Every to take Carter's place, according to a baseball source. Van Every, who hit a grand slam in Pawtucket on Wednesday, gives the Red Sox a better defensive option, which they need with Rocco Baldelli on the disabled list. Van Every has a reputation as an excellent defensive outfielder.

The Sox also made official its trade for Kason Gabbard, reported earlier this afternoon by The Globe's Nick Cafardo. The team acquired Gabbard from the Texas Rangers for cash.
