The Tribe sent Double-A pitcher Steven Wright to the Red Sox in exchange for Triple-A first baseman Lars Anderson, who was stuck in the minors behind starting first baseman Adrian Gonzalez.
“I’m really pretty happy about it to be honest,” Anderson told The Providence Journal. “It’s a strange concept that one day I’m with one team and the next I’m with another, but I’m really looking forward to a fresh start. I think it’s going to energize me. I always thought that’d be a cool place to play with a good organization.”
