    The Red Sox have had production issues in the outfield, and then they lost one of their best bats on Tuesday. They may be addressing those issues.

    Sources told ESPN's Peter Gammons and ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney on Tuesday that the team is on the verge of acquiring center fielder Mark Kotsay from the Atlanta Braves.

    looks like a done deal

    ATLANTA -- Center fielder Mark Kotsay was acquired by the Red Sox from the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday, only one day after Boston put J.D. Drew on the 15-day disabled list because of a lower back strain.

    The 32-year-old Kotsay hit .289 with six home runs and 37 runs batted in 88 games with the Braves.

    The Braves got minor league outfielder Luis Sumoza in the deal. The 20-year-old Sumoza batted .301 in 51 games for Class A Lowell of the New York-Penn League this season.

    Wren said the Braves were interested in signing Sumoza a few years ago.

    "So we had a lot of background on him. He has a lot of upside. That's what you strive for in a trade like this," Wren said.
