The Red Sox have acquired some outfield help in the form of Scott Podsednik.
Podsednik has been acquired by the Red Sox from the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for cash, according to the team.
While it's unclear whether Podsednik will join the Red Sox or remain in the minor leagues, the speedster will help shore up an outfield looking for help while Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford continue to work their way back from injuries. Podsednik signed a minor league deal with the Phillies last year, but injuries limited him to only 14 games in 2011.
In 22 games this year for the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Podsednik is batting .203 with 13 runs scored and six stolen bases. The Red Sox will be the 36-year-old's eighth team over the course of his career.
