Red Sox send Pedro Ciriaco to Padres

06.14.13 at 11:24 am ET

The Red Sox traded utility player Pedo Ciriaco to the Padres for a player to be named later or cash on Friday. Ciriaco had been designated for assignment earlier in the week. Peter Gammons first reported the deal.

A career .287/.315/.398 hitter who has played all infield positions as well as some outfield for Boston, Ciriaco gave the injury-plagued Sox a boost last season, coming in and hitting .293/.315/.390 with 16 stolen bases in 19 attempts over 76 games (259 at-bats). However, he struggled this season, hitting .216/.293/.353 in 28 games and making seven errors between stints at third base and shortstop.

Ciriaco played a combined 31 games for the Pirates in 2010 and 2011 before signing as a free agent with the Red Sox in January 2012.
