ATLANTA (AP) -- The Boston Red Sox have new outfield depth after
completing a trade with the Atlanta Braves for center fielder Mark

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.
