By Joe McDonald
BOSTON -- The Red Sox traded outfielder Mike Cameron and cash to the Florida Marlins in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Cameron, 38, was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on June 30 after appearing in 33 games this season, while batting .149 with 2 doubles, 3 home runs, 9 RBIs, 9 runs and 8 walks.
The veteran outfielder was signed by the Red Sox on Dec. 16, 2009. He spent the majority of last season with a groin/hernia injury and needed season-ending surgery last September. He finished the year hitting .259 with 4 homers and 15 RBIs in 48 games.
