Fast forward almost a year later, Ciriaco is packing his bags and is headed to out west to San Diego. On Friday, the Red Sox dealt the utlity infielder to the Padres for a player to be named later or cash after being designated for assignment last week. Ciriaco has struggled with Boston this season hitting only .216 with a home run and four RBIs in 51 at bats.

With the Padres, it is expected that Ciriaco serves as utlity infielder and could thrive better with more playing time with his new team. Don't expect for the Red Sox to get much in return for him if they end
