Mark Kotsay (file image)

BOSTON (WBZ) ― With J.D. Drew now on the disabled list, there are several reports the Red Sox are about to make a deal for Atlanta Braves center fielder Mark Kotsay.

Kotsay, 32, is currently hitting .289 with 6 home runs and 37 RBI's for Atlanta.

He was kept out of the Braves starting lineup Tuesday against Florida, because a deal with Boston was close to being finalized, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Kotsay ended up pinch-hitting and drew an intentional walk.

"I'd have to say it's my weirdest night as a professional in the big leagues," Kotsay told the paper.

"But I knew [being traded] was possible, so it wasn't a complete shock, when they told me I was being scratched for precautionary reasons," he said.

The Red Sox are expected to send a low or mid-level prospect to the Braves for Kotsay, who will be a free agent at the end of the season.
