Peter Gammons of reports that the Red Sox have traded Pedro Ciriaco to the Padres after designating the infielder for assignment earlier this week.

Boston will get a player to be named later or cash in exchange for Ciriaco, who struggled offensively and committed a bunch of errors defensively this season after a solid 2012 in which he got the first regular playing time of his career at age 26.

San Diego wanted to add some veteran infield depth with Jedd Gyorko on the disabled list and Ciriaco is a career .287 hitter with a .713 OPS who’s played every position but catcher and pitcher in the majors.

    Hate to see him go but the Sox have a logjam on the left side of the infield.

    Good luck in San Diego Pedro! Hopefully you’ll get a chance to start.

    Good luck, Pedro and the Padres. A decent utility guy. He showed flashes, but, in the long run, he also showed why it took so long to get his chance.

    He became a different player when he faced the Yankees.

    I thought that said Pedro Cerrano and was wondering how he got on the Red Sox. No way the Indians will ever trade a power hitter like him.
