Red Sox trade Alejandro De Aza to Giants for Luis Ysla

The Red Sox have traded Alejandro De Aza. At long, long last. The Red Sox have traded outfielder Alejandro De Aza to the San Francisco Giants for left-handed minor league reliever Luis Ysla. A trade of De Aza seemed inevitable at the non-waiver deadline, and when it didn't happen then, it was all-but-guaranteed to come before the waiver deadline passed on Monday night. After all, De Aza, who had hit just .214/.277/.359 for the Orioles when the Red Sox traded for him, proceeded to go on a tear upon joining the Sox. He did not finish strong, exactly, but still carries a 122 OPS+ in his time...

That would make him perfectly qualified for a bench spot, especially considering he has...
