The Red Sox are on the trade board, making their first move leading up the July 31 deadline. Ok, so it isn’t the major deal some fans are hoping for. In fact it’s a minor deal.
Boston traded the versatile outfielder to the Cleveland Indians for minor league pitcher Jose De La Torre.
Lillibridge who was part of the Kevin Youkilis deal, was recently designated for assignment by the Red Sox last week. The 28-year old played in ten games for Boston, collecting two singles. On the year, split between Boston and Chicago, Lillibridge has a slash line of .165/.212/.177 line in 86 plate appearances.
De La Torre, 26-years old, has a 2.91 ERA with a 9.4 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 for the Indians doulbe-A and triple-A minor league clubs, working in 55.2 innings.
