Lars Anderson has made 30 major league appearances with the Red Sox since 2010, accumulating a .167 batting average (8/48), with a double and 4 RBI coming in 2010.
The Pawsox first-baseman had very little hope for any long-term commitment since the acquisition of Adrian Gonzalez. Trading Anderson has always been an inevitability, the Sox we just banking on some build up of trade value over the years that they never got.
Nothing like capping off the trade deadline day with anything but a bang. We were warned it would be un-eventful.
