Trade to Orioles completes Kelly Johnson's AL East tour

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The trade that sent corner infielder Kelly Johnson from Boston to Baltimore on Saturday night, prompted by the Orioles' search for a third baseman to replace the injured Manny Machado, gave Johnson a rare distinction. By going to the Orioles, Johnson now has belonged to all five teams in the American League East: After stints with the Braves and Diamondbacks, he was traded to the Blue Jays in late August 2011, signed as a free agent with the Rays after the 2012 season, signed as a free agent with the Yankees last winter, was traded to the Red Sox at the July 31...

Red Sox trade Kelly Johnson, Michael Almanzar to Orioles for Jemile Weeks, Ivan DeJesus

The Red Sox and Orioles moved some players around without really accomplishing much of anything in the process. The Red Sox have traded Kelly Johnson and Michael Almanzar to the Baltimore Orioles for Jemile Weeks and Ivan DeJesus. The circle of unwanted infielders continues unbroken. The Red Sox received Kelly Johnson from the New York Yankees at the trade deadline in a last-minute deal for Stephen Drew. It was a bizarre trade at the time, with the Yankees maybe betting on a second-half resurgence from Drew (it hasn't happened) and the Red Sox probably just trying to get the fans to forget...

Sox lineup: Johnson, Butler make debuts

There are a couple of debuts being made this afternoon for the Red Sox, less than 24 hours after the 19-inning marathon that left them sucking wind and looking for reinforcements. Kelly Johnson, who was traded from the Yankees for Stephen Drew on July 31, will make his Red Sox debut at first base. Catcher Dan Butler, called up to replace the injured David Ross, will make his major league debut behind the plate. David Ortiz is sitting out, with Mike Napoli in the DH spot.

Red Sox vs. Angels: Playing again just a few hours later

The Red Sox are playing again, which seems odd since it's not a doubleheader and it seems like they just finished playing their last game.

Kelly Johnson activated from disabled list; Mookie Betts optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket to get more consistent playing time

ST. LOUIS – Mookie Betts needs more consistent at-bats and the Red Sox need a left-handed bat off the bench. Boston activated Kelly Johnson from the disabled list on Thursday and in turn optioned Betts to Triple-A Pawtucket. Johnson was acquired...

Red Sox activate Johnson, option Betts

The Red Sox optioned outfielder Mookie Betts to Triple-A Pawtucket before Thursday's game at the St. Louis Cardinals in order to make room on the 25-man roster for Kelly Johnson, whom the Red Sox activated off the 15-day disabled list. Betts, 21, is hitting .244./.279./.266/.645 in 44 plate appearances over 13 games for Boston in 2014. Johnson, whom the Red Sox acquired via a July 31 deadline-day trade with the Yankees in exchange for Stephen Drew, will wear No.
