Lars Anderson Demoted to Triple-A, But No Corresponding Move Announced


BOSTON — Lars Anderson is heading back to Triple-A.

After Tuesday's 5-3 loss against the Athletics, Anderson was summoned into Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine's office. Shortly after the conversation, the first baseman and outfielder started cleaning out his locker.

The Red Sox haven't announced a corresponding move for Anderson. General manager Ben Cherington said he wouldn't offer any updates concerning Aaron Cook until Wednesday.

In two at-bats Tuesday, Anderson went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts, dropping his average to .125. Since being called up last week, he's only recorded one hit, against the Twins on April 24.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
