Ryan Dempster will not pitch in 2014, according to Ken Rosenthal.  The Boston Red Sox right handed pitcher cited physical limitations and a desire to spend time with his family as the reason he will not play this year.

Dempster was due to receive $13.25 million this year, in the second year of a 2 year, $26.5 million deal he signed with Boston after last season.

Dempster was expected to be part of the Boston rotation this season, so he's absence opens up a rotation spot they will have to look to fill.
