BOSTON (AP) -- Looking to add depth to an outfield ravaged by injury, the Boston Red Sox have acquired Scott Podsednik from the Philadelphia Phillies for cash.

The Red Sox announced the move Friday night. The speedy Podsednik was hitting .203 with four RBIs and six stolen bases in 22 games at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The 36-year-old Podsednik last appeared in the majors in 2010 with the Royals and Dodgers. He will report to Triple-A Pawtucket.

With the Milwaukee Brewers in 2004, Podsednik led the National League with 70 stolen bases. He played in the 2005 All-Star game as a member of the Chicago White Sox.
