Red Sox acquire Kevin Frandsen, sign Schoeneweis


The Red Sox have acquired 27-year-old infielder Kevin Frandsen from the San Francisco Giants for a player to be named later or cash considerations and have also signed veteran left-handed reliever Scott Schoeneweis to a minor league deal.

Frandsen, originally selected by the Giants in the twelfth round of the 2004 amateur draft, will report to Boston's major league camp tomorrow. In parts of four major league seasons, all with San Francisco, Frandsen has hit .240/.304/.341 in 174 games. 2009 saw Frandsen spend the majority of his time with Triple-A Fresno, hitting .295/.352/.438 with 13 home runs and 51 RBI. Over the course of five minor league seasons Frandsen has hit .318/.381/.452 in 355 games. He is expected to compete for a spot as a utility man for the Red Sox this season and does have one option year remaining.

Schoeneweis, 36, was released by the Brewers on Thursday and has allowed six runs in 7.0 innings of work this spring. The eleven year veteran has compiled a 4.97 ERA with a 46-57 record in 562 big league appearances with the Angels, White Sox, Blue Jays, Reds, Mets and Diamondbacks organizations. He posted a 7.13 ERA in 24.0 innings of work last season as a member of the Arizona bullpen.
