Red Sox Trade For ANOTHER Infielder—Michael Martinez

OK, something is up! The Red Sox traded for a second infielder in two days—getting Michael Martinez from the Cleveland Indians for cash (Aaron Hill was acquired yesterday). Martinez had been designated for assignment by The Tribe on July 2nd. The 33-year-old Martinez hit .283 in 32 games for Cleveland this year. However, he's a .199 career hitter over six MLB seasons. These two moves have to indicate something big happening with the current roster as well as with prospects. Stay tuned!
