Red Sox bring in Hyzdu

BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox purchased the contract of
outfielder Adam Hyzdu from Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday and
unconditionally released left-hander Matt Perisho.

Hyzdu had been working out in Arizona in case he was needed. He
will serve as a backup outfielder for Boston, which lost Gabe
Kapler to a ruptured Achilles' tendon on Wednesday.

Hyzdu was 0-for-6 in five games for Boston earlier this season
and 3-for-20 for San Diego while spending most of his time in

Perisho appeared in one game for Boston, allowing a run and one
hit without recording an out.
