Twins send RHP Bonser to Red Sox

The Minnesota Twins have traded right-hander Boof Bonser to the

Boston Red Sox for a player to be named later or cash.

The Twins announced the trade Thursday. The 28-year-old Bonser

was on the way out in Minnesota, designated for assignment earlier

this week after pitcher Carl Pavano agreed to go to arbitration

with the team.

Bonser missed all last season after having surgery on his

pitching shoulder. He was 18-25 in his career with the Twins with a

5.12 ERA.
