“Oh, right on. Awesome. He’s got great stuff,” Pedroia said.
“He’s going to help us a ton. We’ve had some injuries on our pitching staff, so we need a guy to come in here and help,” Pedroia said. “Hopefully he does a great job for us. We’re excited to have him. It’s going to be a fun rest of the season.”
A day earlier, the Red Sox added some infield depth by acquiring Mike Aviles from Kansas City.
He showed the effects of his 32-day layoff after going on DL with a sprained left knee. He threw 57 pitches in just 1 1-3 innings and was tagged for five runs and three hits, walking four and striking out two.
He was 40-34 in five seasons with the Orioles, going 15-11 with a 3.76 ERA in 2006 and 13-5 with a 3.16 ERA the following season.
“You hope the acquisition cost is appropriate for what you’re getting back and addresses a need with the club that can make a difference in the standings, and if we’re lucky enough, in the postseason.”
Fields, 25, the 20th player taken in the 2008 draft out of Georgia, was 2-1 with a 2.77 ERA for Double-A Jackson and 0-0 with a 6.23 ERA in nine games for Triple-A Tacoma.
Robinson is hitting .293 with 26 home runs and 71 RBI for Triple-A Albuquerque.View Entire Story
