The Boston Red Sox have acquired Alejandro De Aza from the Baltimore Orioles for cash, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. De Aza was designated for assignment by the Orioles just a few days ago.

De Aza is owed $5 million this season, and it has yet to be confirmed whether or not the Red Sox will take on all his salary.
The 31-year-old has struggled this season with a slash line of .214/.277/.359 in 112 plate appearances.
The Red Sox will use De Aza in a reserve outfield role.
