Red Sox Acquire Brad Emaus From Rockies For Future Considerations

The Colorado Rockies have traded minor league second baseman Brad Emaus to the Boston Red Sox for future considerations, the Rockies announced via Twitter. The future considerations will be either cash considerations or a player to be named later.

The Mets drafted Emaus in the Rule 5 draft from the Blue Jays last offseason, and gave him the job out of spring training. Some compared him to a poor man's Dan Uggla, but the Mets decided to return him to Toronto after hitting .162/.262/.162 slash line after 42 plate appearances.

His return to Toronto was also short lived, as Emaus was traded to the Rockies one day after for a minor league player and future considerations(cash or a player to be named later). For what it's worth, the 25-year-old hit .313/.389/.564 in 186 plate appearances last year down in Triple-A.
