Julio Lugo Traded

Julio Lugo

According to the Boston Herald, Julio Lugo has been traded for outfielder Chris Duncan. The Red Sox will still have to pay the remaining $13.5 million on Lugo’s contract.

Duncan, 27, has struggled this year in limited playing time, hitting .227 with five homers. His best season was in 2007 when he hit 21 homers and knocked in 70 runs. Duncan’s first stop should be Pawtucket.

I guess this is the best Theo and co. could get for the aging Lugo. It’s not much, but at least we don’t need to hear any more painful stories about what the Red Sox are going to do with Lugo.
