The Boston Red Sox acquired a player they hope could give them some bench depth and a left handed bat this season. Boston turned a deal with the Seattle Mariners for OF/1B Mike Carp. Carp will add a left handed bat to the lineup and reportedly was acquired for either cash considerations or a player to be named later. Carp became available after the Mariners designated him for assignment on February 12.
Carp struggled with shoulder injuries last year posting a .213..312/.341 line in just 189 plate appearances but has a career line of .255/.327/.413. In order to make room on the Red Sox roster, the team moved OF Ryan Kalish to the 60-day disabled list while recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum.
He should provide insurance behind Mike Napoli at first bast this season while also being able to play the outfield.

The Red Sox have reached a trade agreement with the Seattle Mariners that will send 1B/OF Mike Carp to Boston in exchange for a player to be named later or cash (cue the "we wanted Mike Trout, not Mike Carp jokes").

Let’s get all of the puns out of the way now and say that acquiring Mike Carp doesn’t exactly mean the Red Sox reeled in a big fish. Carp is a serviceable bench player, though, and he’ll bring some added competition to the mix at a very reasonable cost.

Alright Red Sox Nation I’m no conspiracy theorist but
something’s a little fishy regarding a recent story coming out of Fort Myers. On Thursday
CSNNE.com wrote a post detailing some of the delay issues Mike Carp leaving the Mariners organization - essentially he was stuck in Seattle and that’s like walking into a
depression clinic, yikes.
When I went to revisit this story...

According to NESN, the Boston Red Sox have acquired first baseman/outfielder Mike Carp from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for either cash considerations or a player to be named later.

The Boston Red Sox spent yesterday's off day picking up Seattle left handed hitter 1B/OF Mike Carp. Carp had been designated for assignment by the Mariners, but the Red Sox picked him up for a player to be named later. What does this mean in Boston? Well, first of all, first base is a log jam.

Hot News for LF Mike Carp
Boston Red Sox right-hander Alfredo Aceves had another
run-in with coaches recently, which has prompted rumors of his potential trade.
While Nick Cafardo doesn’t believe the pitcher could be flipped for someone

trade is realistic.

Not since Curt Schilling retired following the 2007 season has a member of the Red Sox donned No. 38. That’s about to change, though, as newcomer Mike Carp has been assigned the number upon reporting to spring training.
Carp, who wore No. 20 with the Mariners the past three seasons, has no ties to No. 38. Instead, the assignment was simply a matter of what was available, although...
Mike Napoli may be slated to get the majority of the at-bats at first base, but there are a couple reasons it may make sense to have a dedicated backup.
For one, though he’s never suffered any symptoms from it, there’s no telling when the degenerative condition in Napoli’s hip may act up. Secondly, Napoli is probably best deployed in a platoon, taking most of his at-bats against...

Lyle Overbay is probably throwing a mini-tantrum right now in Ft. Myers as the
Red Sox have completed a trade with the Seattle Mariners for OF/1B Mike Carp.
The trade sends Carp to Boston in exchange for a player to be named later
or cash consideration. However Carp enters the 2013 season with some question
When the Red Sox signed Lyle Overbay earlier this offseason, it looked as if the 12-year veteran was on the fast track to earning a spot on the club’s bench. Overbay now has some spring training competition, though, as the arrival of Mike Carp will surely shake things up.
