The Boston Red Sox have acquired Eduardo Nunez from the San Francisco Giants in exchange for pitchers Shaun Anderson and Gregory Santos.
In 75 games with the Giants this season, Nunez was batting .307 with four homers and 17 stolen bases. His addition will be very great for Boston, who could add some more speed and contact hitting to their lineups. Nunez was pulled from tonight's game after two at-bats and left the game with hugs from his coaches and teammates. He went 1-for-2 tonight with two runs batted in.
