Hello, I Must Be Going: Red Sox Sign Podsednik After Trading Him To D-Backs

CLEVELAND (AP) _ The Boston Red Sox have signed veteran outfielder Scott Podsednik just over a week after trading him to Arizona.

Podsednik batted .387 with one home run and seven RBIs in 19 games for the Red Sox before being dealt to the Diamondbacks on July 31. He was released by Arizona after declining an assignment to Triple-A Reno.

Podsednik, who was batting ninth and playing left field Friday night at Cleveland, and right-hander Matt Albers were traded to Arizona for left-hander Craig Breslow, who is pitching in Boston’s bullpen.

To make room on the roster, outfielder Ryan Kalish was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket. He batted .203 in 25 games.
