The Boston Red Sox have acquired Mike Carp from the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday.
Of the other left-handed-hitting first baseman/outfielders, Carp isn't viewed as the top choice among other competing for their place on the team but he hit 12 home runs last season while on the Mariners and all bit one flew at least 385 feet. Due to a series of injuries, Carp was unable to play in 79 games last season.
Carp doesn't have a reputation as a great defender which may become an issue for the Red Sox. They depend on Mike Napoli despite his lack of first base experience but Carp is considered a sufficient outfielder.
The Mariners used 26-year-old Carp as a cleanup hitter. The Mariners were not confident that Carp was enough so they decided to bring on three additional players to play the same position over the winter.
Carp's agent, Tom O'Connell, was at camp on Monday discussing Carp with the Red Sox general manager, Ben Cherington.
Carp will be set for the exhibition doubleheader against Northeastern and Boston College on Thursday.
