Looks like the Marlon Byrd era in Boston has come to an end.

According to a tweet by Ian Browne, the Red Sox outfielder will be designated for assignment to make room on the roster for returning starter Daisuke Matsuzaka.

The 34-year old outfielder hit .270 with 1 home run and 7 RBI after being acquired from the Chicago Cubs for pitcher Michael Bowden.
