The Boston Red Sox finally got their replacement for centerfielder Johnny Damon, landing Coco Crisp in a six-player deal with the Cleveland Indians. The mercenary Damon bolted for the New York Yankees in free agency in December, leaving the Red Sox with a gaping hole in center field. The switch-hitting Crisp, 26, came at a hefty price: third base uber-prospect Andy Marte, acquired by the Sox earlier in the offseason from the Atlanta Braves. In addition, the teams swapped relievers, with Guillermo Mota heading to Cleveland and David Riske coming to Boston, as well as catchers, with Red Sox prospect Kelly Shoppach trading places with backup catcher Josh Bard. The Red Sox are reportedly paying $1M of Mota's salary.
