Red Sox Acquire Kotsay

Early this morning, the Braves traded OF Mark Kotsay to the Red Sox for minor league outfielder Luis Sumoza. Kotsay, who is hitting .289 with 6 HR, will play for his third team in two years. "To be with the Red Sox will be cool," Kotsay said. "I've always said there were a couple of teams I'd like to play for, with Atlanta being one of them. But I'm looking forward to joining the Red Sox and being in the pennant race." The Braves acquire a pretty good prospect in Sumoza, 20, who is hitting .301 with 11 HR in Class A.
