Today Boston sent Clayton Mortensen to the Royals for Quintin Berry. Mortensen was the reliever the Red Sox got when they traded Marco Scutaro to the Rockies. He had moments of impressive work but was maddeningly inconsistent at times, though he had a 3.21 ERA in 26 games last year. He never had a Red Sox card made of him. A shame. Berry has not appeared in a Major League game this year but stole 21 bases in Detroit last year. I sense a designated pinch-runner role down the stretch. Much like Joey Gathright was a couple of times.
