The Boston Red Sox agreed on Monday to trade outfielder Kevin Pillar to the Colorado Rockies. According to Mark Feinsand of the MLB Network, the Rockies get Pillar for a player to be named later and “international slot money.”

In addition, the Red Sox sent reliever Josh Osich to the Chicago Cubs, also for a player to be named later. Bob Nightengale of USA Today first reported the Osich deal.

Pillar batted .274 in 30 games with the Red Sox, starting 19 contests in right field. He played his typically stellar defense, making three outfield assists without recording an error. His 1.4 defensive WAR ranked third among all outfielders in the AL, according to FanGraphs.
