Kotsay waived to make room for LaRoche


Nick Carfardo of Boston.com is reporting that the Red Sox have placed first baseman / outfielder Mark Kotsay on waivers to make room on the 25-man roster for the recently acquired Adam LaRoche. Kotsay originally came to Boston in a trade on August 2, 2008 in exchange for outfielder Luis Sumoza, hitting .226/.286/.345 in 22 games after arriving. Kotsay resigned with the Sox during the offseason, and in 27 games and 74 at-bats in 2009, he hit .257/.291/.324 with 1 home run and 5 RBI after getting a late start to the year following back surgery in late January. If he is not claimed by another team within 48 hours, the Red Sox can either release him outright or send him to the minor leagues.
