Catcher Kelly Shoppach might have gotten his professional start in Boston, but his first season was a brief nine games. He had no hits and seven strikeouts in his only 15 at-bats. At the beginning of 2006, he was traded to the Cleveland Indians where he played four seasons. He also played a year for the Tampa Bay Rays before returning to the Red Sox on a one-year deal in December 2011.
In August 2012, Shoppach was traded to the New York Mets before agreeing to a contract with the Seattle Mariners in 2013. In 35 games in the first half of 2013 for the Mariners, he hit .196 with three home runs and nine RBIs. He was designated for assignment by the Mariners on June 14, and was signed by the Washington Nationals on July 3.
