Red Sox Pick Up Catcher Bryan Holaday From Texas

Well, this is weird. The Red Sox today made a successful claim on Ranger catcher Bryan Holaday—who was DFL'd earlier by Texas. Holaday is hitting .238  with two HRs this season in very limited action. The 28-year old spent most of his career with Detroit—but was displaced by (ironically) Jarrod Saltalamacchia. It's unclear what impact this acquisition will have on Andover High School's Ryan Hanigan—who has slumped badly lately on the offensive side of the ball.
