The Boston Red Sox today designated outfielder Mike Cameron for assignment and recalled infielder Yamaico Navarro from Triple-A Pawtucket. Navarro will be active for today's game against the Phillies in Philadelphia, wearing number 60.

The announcement was made by Executive Vice President/General Manager Theo Epstein.

Cameron, 38, has appeared in 33 games with the Red Sox this year, playing all three outfield positions, including 23 starts in right field and two in center field. He has gone 14-for-94 (.149) at the plate with two doubles, three home runs, nine RBI, nine runs and eight walks. Signed by Boston as a free agent on December 16, 2009, Cameron has posted a .249 career average (1,666-for-6,696) with 375 doubles, 59 triples, 272 home runs, 950 RBI, 1,046 runs, 847 walks and 296 stolen bases in 1,910 Major League games over part of 17 seasons with the White Sox (1995-98), Reds (1999), Mariners (2000-03), Mets (2004-05), Padres (2006-07), Brewers (2008-09) and Red Sox (2010-11).

The 23-year-old Navarro will be in his first Major League stint this season. The right-handed batter has hit .258 (33-for-128) with eight doubles, two triples, five home runs, 13 RBI, 25 runs and 17 walks in 34 games with the PawSox this year, tallying a .293 clip (12-for-41) against left-handed pitching. He has appeared at six different positions with Pawtucket in 2011, including nine games at third base, seven at shortstop, five at second base, eight in right field, three in left field and one in center field. Signed by the Red Sox as an international free agent on September 25, 2005, Navarro made his Big League debut with Boston last August and played in 20 games with the club. He made 10 starts with the Red Sox last season, including six at shortstop, two at second base and two at third base, and was 6-for-42 (.143) with 5 RBI overall at the plate.
