Carp traded to the Red Sox

The Mariners just made it official, Mike Carp to the Red Sox for cash considerations or a player to be named later.

Thursday was the deadline for the Mariners to trade or release Carp after designating him for assignment when they acquired Joe Saunders.

Carp, 26, appeared in 173 games over four seasons with the Mariners (2009-2012). He combined to bat .255 (139x545) with 28 doubles, two triples and 18 home runs. He was acquired by Seattle from New York (NL) in a three-team, 12-player trade on Dec. 10, 2008.
