Conor Jackson still out after running into Fenway Park wall

Last week’s Red Sox-A’s swap may end up being the least impactful in baseball history.

Jason Rice, who the A’s acquired, was waived and claimed by the Indians just days after the trade, so Oakland lost him for nothing.

Conor Jackson, who the Red Sox acquired, injured his knee running into the right-field wall in front of the bullpen at Fenway Park in his third game and remains unavailable five days later.

Asked about Jackson’s status, manager Terry Francona told Sean McAdam of “We’re trying to get over the hump. We’re trying to get him available for a game and I don’t know that we’re there yet.”

    I have a less impactful one, also involving the Red Sox. On December 19, 2001 the Sox traded Scott Hatteberg to the Rockies for Pokey Reese. On December 21, 2001 (two days later), the Sox failed tender Reese a contract, thereby making him a free agent. On the same date, the Rockies failed to tender Hatteberg, thereby making him a free agent. Both players subsequently signed with other teams. Their tenures lasted less time than it took my to type this comment.
