Red Sox Organization Report

John Tomase -Premium Content

Few have followed a stranger path to the upper levels of the minor leagues than Devern Hansack. The 28-year-old Nicaraguan righthander hadn't pitched in the states in three years when Red Sox executive Craig Shipley spotted him at a tournament in Holland late last fall. Shipley liked Hansack's live arm and, since he would come cheaply as a minor league free agent, the Red Sox took a flier and signed him in December.

It is only appropriate that in his 50th year with the Braves, Paul Snyder has made yet another major impact on the organization. After announcing his retirement as Atlanta's director of scouting and player development in 1999 because of health reasons, the 70-year-old Snyder is back as the Braves' farm director.

Owners of a 13 1/2-game lead in the National League East, the Mets have all but clinched a playoff berth. But with Xavier Nady traded to the Mets, Cliff Floyd hurt yet again and megaprospect Lastings Milledge still trying to figure the big leagues out, New York needed help on the outfield corners. So the Mets addressed that problem on Tuesday, getting Shawn Green from the Diamondbacks for Triple-A lefthander Evan MacLane. Arizona also kicked in $6.3 million, slightly less than half the remaining value of Green's contract.

Phillies, Mariners Change Directions

Jim Callis -

The Phillies have charged back into the National League wild-card race, while the Mariners have fallen hopelessly out of contention in the American League West. So on Saturday, the teams made a trade reflecting their new status. Philadelphia obtained Jamie Moyer from Seattle in exchange for Class A pitching prospects Andrew Baldwin and Andrew Barb. The Mariners also contributed cash toward the remainder of Moyer's $5.5 million salary for 2006.
