Mariners trade catcher Quiroz to Red Sox
SEATTLE -- Veteran catcher Guillermo Quiroz, who spent the season with Seattle's Triple-A Tacoma squad, was traded Tuesday by the Mariners to the Red Sox for cash considerations.

Quiroz, 30, hit .278 with 15 home runs and 52 RBIs in 89 games for Tacoma this year. He played seven games with Seattle in 2009-10, then spent last year with the Padres' organization in Triple-A Tucson before re-signing with the Mariners this season.

The Venezuelan native has played 101 games in the Major Leagues over parts of seven seasons with the Blue Jays, Mariners, Rangers and Orioles, with a career .208 batting average, two home runs and 28 RBIs in 255 at-bats.

Quiroz signed with Seattle as a Minor League free agent on Dec. 9, 2011, and was named to the Pacific Coast League All-Star team.
