Red Sox Trade 1B Lars Anderson To Indians For P Steven Wright

The Boston Red Sox made a trade for a pitcher at the MLB trade deadline, but not a big name one. The Red Sox sent first baseman Lars Anderson to the Cleveland Indians for Double-A starter Steven Wright.

Anderson was once a top prospect in the Red Sox system, but was unable to get promoted much to the big league club with Adrian Gonzalez ahead of him. Anderson was hitting .259 with nine homers and 52 RBI this season for Triple-A Pawtucket. He had similar production last season in Triple-A. In six games with the Red Sox this season, Anderson hit .125 in eight plate appearances.

Wright, 27, is a knuckleballer who is 9-6 this season with a 2.70 ERA for Double-A Akron. Wright is not part of the Red Sox 40-man roster (via WEEI). He has been assigned to Double-A Portland.
