Red Sox trade Ciriaco to Padres

BALTIMORE -- The Red Sox sent infielder Pedro Ciriaco to the Padres on Friday in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations.

Ciriaco had been designated for assignment on Monday.

Ciriaco batted .293 in 76 games last year for the Red Sox, playing several positions, but he had just a .216 average in 28 games this season. In addition, he had problems defensively, with seven errors in those 28 games.

Ciriaco is a true utility player, having spent time at every position except pitcher and catcher in his 135-game Major League career.
