The Boston Red Sox have shored up their infield depth by acquiring veteran Aaron Hill in exchange for two minor leaguers, the team announced on Thursday.
Minor league right-hander Aaron Wilkerson and second baseman Wendell Rijo will head to Milwaukee in the deal.
The University of Michigan product signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox this past offseason after spending his first six seasons in the Cincinnati Reds organization.
La Marre appeared in just six games with the Red Sox this season, drawing one walk and not recording a hit in six plate appearances.
After spending his first season in independent ball, Wilkerson signed with the Red Sox prior to the 2014 campaign.
Also, to make room on the 40-man roster, Boston announced that outfielder Ryan La Marre was designated for assignment.
Hill, 34, was traded to Milwaukee this offseason as part of the deal that sent Jean Segura to the Arizona Diamondbacks.
After struggling the last two seasons, posting a batting line of 0.237/0.291/0.356, Hill has enjoyed a productive 2016 campaign.
In 78 games with the Brewers, Hill has hit 0.283/0.359/0.421 with eight home runs, 11 doubles, and 29 runs batted in.
Boston now has 10 days to trade, release, or outright La Marre to the minor leagues, where he’s a 0.267/0.332/0.409 hitter in parts of four Triple-A seasons.While Rijo has been generally viewed as one of Boston’s top prospects, Wilkerson’s performance in the minors this year has been tremendous.
