Sox acquire utility infielder

The Red Sox and Colorado Rockies have made a minor deal in which the Sox will get infielder Brad Emaus from the Rockies for a player to be named or cash.

Emaus can play second or third base.

Emaus has done some traveling recently. He was a Blue Jay, was taken by the Mets in the Rule 5 draft in 2010, but then was returned to the Jays.

The Jays then dealt him to the Rockies, who sent him back to Triple A. He hit .313 with a .389 on base percentage there.
