Boston Red Sox Acquire Mike Carp From Seattle
Always looking to improve their offense and defense, the Red Sox add first baseman Mike Carp to their roster.
At first it doesn't seem like a huge upgrade, but Red Sox Manager John Farrell says that the team is looking for a slugger to go against lefties, and Carp has a pretty good average against those pitchers.
For Carp, the Red Sox traded a player to be named later, or a cash option. The Sox moved Ryan Kalish to the 60-day disabled list to make room for him on the roster.
