Red Sox Claim Travis Denker

According to Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Red Sox claimed second baseman Travis Denker off waivers from the Padres today.  Denker had been designated for assignment to clear a spot for Luis Perdomo.

Denker, 23, hit .282/.373/.468 at Triple A last year as a member of the Giants organization.  Baseball America envisioned him as an offense-first second baseman in their '08 Handbook, writing, "his value lies in his bat and his tenacity."
