Red Sox trade Danny Valencia to Orioles

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

The Boston Red Sox have traded infielder Danny Valencia to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for cash considerations, according to an announcement on the team's official twitter page.

Valenica was acquired by the Red Sox in August via trade with the Minnesota Twins that sent minor league outfielder Jeremias Pineda the other way. Valencia was immediately optioned to Boston's Triple-A minor league affiliate, the Pawtucket Red Sox and was eventually recalled to the team on Aug. 11 after Will Middlebrooks was placed on the disabled list.

In ten games with the Red Sox, Valencia recorded a .143 batting average, .138 on-base percentage and .250 slugging percentage, in addition to four RBI and a homerun.

Originally selected by the Twins in the 19th round of the 2006 amateur draft, Valencia made his major league debut in 2010. He went on to play in 283 games over three seasons in Minnesota and recorded a .260 batting average with 129 RBI.
