Red Sox acquire Jack Hannahan from Seattle


According to Dan Hoard on Twitter, the Red Sox have acquired utility infielder Jack Hannahan from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Hannahan, 30, was originally drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the third round of the 2001 amateur draft. He made his major league debut with the Tigers in 2006 and was subsequently traded to the Oakland Athletics before the 2007 season. After spending three years as a member of the Oakland organization, Hannahan was traded to the Seattle Mariners before the trading deadline last season. Splitting time between every infield position but catcher, Hannahan has amassed a .224/.311/.347 line in parts of four major league seasons. He has spent all of 2010 as part of the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers, hitting .228/.331/.334 with 5 home runs and 33 RBI in 63 games. In parts of nine minor league seasons Hannahan has posted a .268/.359/.389 line.

Hannahan will most likely report to Triple-A Pawtucket but could be used by the big league squad as a versatile utility infielder.
