Red Sox Trade Coco Crisp To Royals

By on November 19, 2008 in

The Boston Red Sox were able to free up some money, move an outfielder and pick up a solid reliever via a trade with the Kansas City Royals today.  Centerfielder Coco Crisp will be heading to the Royals in a deal for right handed reliever Ramon Ramirez.  Crisp split time in the outfield with Jacoby Ellsbury but was owed $5.75 million in 2009, too rich for a part time player.  The move also helps the Red Sox free up cash for a very good free agent market this off-season.

Ramon Ramirez appeared in 71 games in 2008 with a 2.64 ERA in 71 1/3 innings. He was 3-2 with one save.
