Littleton acquired from Texas


The Red Sox have acquired sidearm RHP Wes Littleton from the Texas Rangers for two players to be named later or cash, and have placed him on their 40 man roster. In 102.3 major league innings over 80 appearances Littleton (26) has shown an aptitude for inducing ground balls, 196 ground outs to 78 fly outs (78 percent) and has held right handed batters to a .236 BAA. Littleton spent the bulk of the 2008 season with AAA Oklahoma City, going 7-1 with six saves in 58.3 innings pitched over 44 appearances, allowing 26 earned runs (4.01 ERA) on 55 hits (.248 BAA), and striking out 58 while walking 25. In 18 innings with Texas over 12 appearances in 2008 he allowed 12 earned runs (6.00 ERA) on 18 hits, striking out 14 and walking eight. Littleton was a fourth round pick out of Cal State-Fullerton in 2003 and made his major league debut in 2006. He was designated for assignment by Texas on November 20, and is out of options.
