Red Sox, De Jesus agree to minor league deal

Ivan De Jesus – who was acquired last August from the Los Angeles Dodgers in the blockbuster trade that sent Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett to LA – agreed to a minor league deal with the Red Sox.

A 25-year-old infielder from Puerto Rico who was a second round selection of the Dodgers in 2005, De Jesus was designated for assignment earlier this month when he was removed from the 40-man roster.

De Jesus projects as a utility player in the majors and can proficiently play the middle infield spots as well as third base and the corner outfield positions.

The son of former Major Leaguer Ivan De Jesus Sr. serves as depth for the Red Sox, which have Pedro Ciriaco as the primary utility infielder entering the 2013 campaign.
