The Red Sox have acquired infielder Niuman Romero from the Indians for cash considerations, tweets Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer. The 25-year-old has been in Cleveland's farm system since 2005.
Romero made his major league debut in September of last season, appearing in 10 games for the Tribe. He saw his first promotions to Double-A and Triple-A in 2009, where he was less than stellar offensively. The native of Venezuela hit .240/.306/.292 in his stops in Akron and Columbus.
The acquisition comes days after the BoSox DFA'd Kevin Frandsen, who was claimed by the Angels.
