Red Sox complete deal with Dodgers

The Red Sox today completed their Aug. 25 trade with the Dodgers by officially acquiring
righthander Rubby De La Rosa and first baseman/outfielder Jerry Sands.

They had been listed as players to be named later in the deal that sent Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez and Nick Punto to the Dodgers.

The Sox also received first baseman James Loney, infielder Ivan De Jesus Jr. and righthander Allen Webster in the deal.

To make room on the 40-man roster, catcher Guillermo Quiroz was designated for a assignment.

De La Rosa, 23, was 11-9 record with six saves and a 2.86 ERA in 59 career minor league appearances over six seasons in the Dodgers system. Signed by Los Angeles as an international free agent in July 2007, he made his debut with the club in 2011 and posted a 4-5 record with a 3.71 ERA over 13 games (10 starts).


De La Rosa had Tommy John surgery in Aug. 2011. He pitched in seven games this season, one with the Dodgers.

The 25-year-old Sands spent most of 2012 with the Dodgers Triple-A Albuquerque affiliate and was named to the Pacific Coast League’s Postseason All-Star Team. This season, he led all Triple-A batters with 107 RBI and finished third in the PCL with 26 home runs. He also had 17 doubles, four triples, 84 runs scored and 59 walks in 119 games.
