MIAMI (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have acquired outfielder Jeremy Hermida from the Florida Marlins for left-handers Jose Alvarez and Hunter Jones.

Hermida was the Marlins’ first-round draft pick in 2002 but has yet to fulfill his projected potential. He hit .259 this year with 13 home runs and 47 RBIs. He’s a career .265 hitter with 57 homers.

Alvarez went 9-4 in Class A this year with a 2.26 ERA in 12 starts and 14 relief appearances. The 20-year-old Venezuelan has a 3.21 ERA in four minor league seasons.

Jones spent most of this year in Triple-A but had a 9.24 ERA in 11 relief appearances for the Red Sox.
