Sox trade Ambres to the Mets

On a day otherwise consumed by the Rule IV Draft, the Red Sox have traded Pawtucket outfielder Chip Ambres to the New York Mets and will receive future considerations in return. For Ambres, this will be his second stint with the Mets organization, having gone 1 for 3 in 3 games for New York in 2007. It will also be the second time he will have been traded by the Red Sox, having been sent to Kansas City in 2005 as part of the deal that brought Tony Graffanino to Boston. He had been hitting .259/.335/.368 with 3 home runs, 18 RBI and 18 runs scored in 185 at-bats for Pawtucket. A veteran of eleven minor league seasons, the 29-year-old Ambres was the first round selection (27th overall) of the Florida Marlins in 1998. He owns career .259/.361/.437 numbers with 116 home runs and 484 RBI in 3772 minor league at bats playing in the Marlins, Red Sox, Royals, Mets and Padres organizations.
