DeShields was traded to the Red Sox from the Rangers on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

The speedster has slashed .264/.397/.372 with five home runs and 18 RBI at Triple-A Round Rock this season while going 16-for-18 on stolen-base attempts. The 29-year-old DeShield's best big-league season was 2017, when he hit .269 and stole 29 bags with the Rangers. It's unclear whether the Red Sox see a major-league role for DeShields this season or if they're just bolstering their outfield depth at Triple-A Worcester.
