ATLANTA (AP) -- The Boston Red Sox have new outfield depth after
completing a trade with the Atlanta Braves for center fielder Mark
Kotsay.
The Red Sox, in a tight pennant race, acquired Kotsay on
Wednesday, only one day after placing J.D. Drew on the 15-day
disabled list with a lower back strain.
Kotsay, 32, hit .289 with six home runs and 37 runs batted in 88
games with the Braves.
The Braves acquired minor-league outfielder Luis Sumoza in the
deal.
Sumoza, 20, hit .301 in 51 games for Class A Lowell of the New
York-Penn League this season.
The Braves recalled Josh Anderson from Triple-A Richmond to take
Kotsay's spot on the roster.
