Report: Red Sox bring back OF Scott Podsednik

Friday August 10th, 2012

Outfielder Scott Podsednik made the most of his first stint with the Boston Red Sox, hitting .387 in 70 plate appearances. But due to an outfielder surplus when Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford returned from injury, Boston threw Podsednik into the Matt Albers-Craig Breslow deal at the trade deadline.

The Arizona Diamondbacks waived Podsednik two days later after he declined a minor-league assignment, and now Ken Rosenthal of reports that Boston is bringing Podsednik back east on a major league deal.
