Houston will make the jack of all trades its regular second baseman, according to Fox Sports.
The Red Sox were very busy on Thursday, making several minor moves in addition to the splash they made with Bobby Jenks.
The 26-year-old will attempt to revive his career as a pitcher after spending eight years in the minor leagues as an outfielder.
According to Jon Morosi of Fox Sports, the Red Sox have sent the veteran utilityman to the San Diego Padres to complete the trade that sent Adrian Gonzalez to Boston.
The Red Sox insisted they were going to strengthen their bullpen, and it looks as though they're about to do just that. Sean McAdam reports Boston and Bobby Jenks are close to a two-year, 12 million deal.
