Now it makes sense
Wondering why the Red Sox signed Brad Wilkerson earlier this week when they already have Mark Kotsay to back up at first base and the outfield?
We got our answer today with the revelation that Kotsay underwent back surgery on Jan. 29.
The Red Sox sound optimistic on Kotsay. He shouldn’t miss much time. He’s had back issues in the past. But it’s nice to have Wilkerson around to fill that role until he gets back.
