The Red Sox have released infielder Jhonny Peralta from his minor league contract, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports. Peralta signed with the Red Sox last month after he was released by the Cardinals.

In 10 games with Triple-A Pawtucket, Peralta hit a disappointing .200/.195/.375. That’s on the heels of hitting .204/.259/.204 in 21 games with the Cardinals at the major league level earlier this year.

Peralta is 35 years old and doesn’t appear to have much left in the tank, but there’s still a chance he will get another shot with another team on a minor league deal. The Cardinals are responsible for the remainder of his $10 million salary this season.
