The Boston Red Sox announced Monday the acquisition of Chicago Cubs minor league shortstop Marco Hernandez as the player to be named later in the teams' July 30 trade that sent left-handed pitcher Felix Doubront to Chicago.
Hernandez, 22, spent 2014 as a member of the High-A Daytona Cubs, hitting .270 with three home runs, 55 RBIs and 22 stolen bases.
Doubront, a once highly touted prospect, spent 10 years in the Red Sox organization before being dealt to the Cubs. Seeing time as both a starter and reliever at the major league level, he owns a 28-23 record with a 4.78 ERA over five seasons.
Hernandez has been assigned to the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs.
