The Boston Red Sox have signed outfielder Scott Podsednik to a major league deal, as reported by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

Podsednik will be re-joining the Red Sox after the team dealt him to the Arizona Diamondbacks in a trade deadline deal in which the teams swapped relievers. The D'Backs didn't want to keep him in the majors and released the veteran outfielder after Podsednik declined his assignment to the minor leagues.

With Ryan Sweeney landing on the disabled list, Podsednik will serve as the team's fourth outfielder and could be in somewhat of a platoon role as the left-handed bat to Cody Ross. In limited time with the Red Sox, Podsednik did well, batting .387/.409/.484 with 7 stolen bases and 1 home run in 70 plate appearances over 19 games.

The deal will likely be for the minimum, but that's speculative.
