Red Sox Prospect Chris Carpenter Celebrates Shark Week by Catching Shark (Photo)

It’s Shark Week, so stay away from the beach and learn up on the terror of the high seas. 

Red Sox prospect Chris Carpenter — who fans might recognize as the player the team received in exchange for letting Theo Epstein sign with the Cubs — celebrated this year with a photo of a shark he caught while apparently doing a little bit of fishing.

Considering that the PawSox are in Buffalo on Monday and there aren’t many sharks in upstate New York, the photo the right-hander tweeted out may be an old one. That said, it’s still pretty cool.

Fans may also remember reliever Mark Melancon swimming with sharks back in February, as seen here.
