Right-Handed Pitcher Brandon Workman Transferred to 60-Day DL

BOSTON, MA – The Boston Red Sox today acquired outfielder Alejandro De Aza and cash considerations from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for minor league right-handed pitcher Joe Gunkel. To make room for him on the 40-man roster, right-handed pitcher Brandon Workman was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. De Aza is expected to join the Red Sox for tomorrow’s home game against the Minnesota Twins beginning at 4:05 p.m.

De Aza, 31, has appeared in 30 games for the Orioles this season, including 27 starts between left field (19) and right field (8). The left-handed batter has hit .214 (22-for-103) with four doubles, a triple, three homers, seven RBI, 16 runs scored, and two stolen bases in 2015, with all eight of his extra-base hits coming against right-handed pitching. He had been the designated for assignment on May 27.
