Sox acquire OF Podsednik for Pawtucket

BOSTON -- Needing an extra outfielder in Triple-A Pawtucket after calling up Daniel Nava, the Red Sox made a deal with the Philadelphia Phillies for 36-year-old outfielder Scott Podsednik in exchange for what one baseball source described as "modest" cash considerations.

Podsedsnik is a 10-year big-league veteran who last played in the majors in 2010, with the Royals and Dodgers. He has spent the last two seasons with Lehigh Valley, the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate. He was batting .203 in 22 games this season with Lehigh Valley.
