Acquired OF-L Quintin Berry for RHP Clayton Mortensen. [8/27]

Last season Berry, then a 27-year-old rookie, found himself in the Tigers lineup as they advanced to the World Series. His improbable big-league run has since paused, leaving him in his third organization this year while in search of his first plate appearance. Because Berry is no longer on the 40-man roster, the Red Sox—already facing a roster crunch—would need to make a move to get him on board. If Boston does add Berry, it's because of his speed. He went 21-for-21 on stolen-base attempts last season for Detroit, and having a designated pinch-runner on the postseason roster, or at least September's expanded roster, makes sense. Alternatively, Berry could be little more than a replacement for some Triple-A outfielder about to get promoted. - R.J. Anderson
