PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Boston Red Sox designated outfielder Mike Cameron for assignment and recalled infielder Yamaico Navarro from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Navarro was active for Thursday’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Also, Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis was out of the lineup with a sore left foot. Youkilis fouled a ball off it in Wednesday night’s game. General manager Theo Epstein says Youkilis‘ X-rays were negative.

Cameron played in 33 games with the Red Sox this year, and was batting only .149 with three home runs and nine RBIs. Cameron is a .249 career hitter with 272 homers, 950 RBIs and 296 stolen bases over 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).
