Red Sox - DLed Foulke, Acquired Cora
Boston Red Sox - Placed P Keith Foulke on the 15-day DL; recalled P Scott Cassidy; acquired IF Alex Cora from the Cleveland Indians for IF Ramon Vazquez; DFAed OF Jay Payton.
The Indians save a bit of money here and as a nice side effect, make it a lot harder to lose starts for Jhonny Peralta. As far as I can tell, Peralta’s great crime is not being mid-90s Vizquel with the glove. Vazquez is an adequate backup and won’t push better players to the bench - I rather have Cora, but Vazquez isn’t as bad as he’s played this year.
The Red Sox now have a player who can push Mark Bellhorn a bit, but hopefully not all the way as Cora’s hit much worse than Bellhorn this year and is probably a bit overrated defensively (he’s good, but Izturis is the one that made the Dodger DP combo awesome last year). Bellhorn should still get the majority of the playing time, unless that way-out-there Bellhorn-for-Boone rumor comes to pass (which would be a disaster for the Sox).
I wouldn’t have DFAed Jay Payton - the Sox obviously think a lot more of Adam Stern than I do. Why dump a guy who’s been a decent role player before exploring the other options? The Braves have little use for Stern and you can probably lose a lesser player to the Braves than Payton in return for getting to keep Stern.
