The Red Sox today traded for righthanded hitting White Sox outfielder Brian Anderson, sending Mark Kotsay to Chicago in return. Anderson, who is hitting .238 with two homers on the season, was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on July 20. Kotsay was designated for assignment by the Red Sox last week.
It is unclear whether Anderson will be added to the 25-man Red Sox roster or whether he will be optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket.
The Red Sox had been in the market for a righthanded-hitting outfielder.
