    Former Wildcat outfielder sent to Red Sox

    BOSTON – In a swap of outfielders, the Boston Red Sox traded Mark Kotsay and cash to the Chicago White Sox for former UA graduate Brian Anderson on Tuesday.

    The Red Sox are second in the AL East, and designated the 33-year-old Kotsay for assignment last week. The White Sox are second in the AL Central and sent the 27-year-old Anderson to Triple-A last week.

    Anderson, a Canyon del Oro High School graduate, was hitting .238 with two homers and 13 RBIs when the White Sox sent him down to Triple-A Charlotte. The Red Sox will option him to Triple-A Pawtucket.

    Anderson is a career .225 hitter with 20 homers in 334 games since making his major league debut with Chicago in 2005. Like Kotsay, Anderson is known for his excellent defense.

    Swim hires former Washington coach

    Whitney Hite, the former University of Washington swimming coach, is headed for an assistant position under Arizona head coach Frank Busch.

    The 35-year-old spent his last three seasons leading both the men’s and women’s teams for the Huskies before the squads were cut from the athletic program.

    “”Whitney is a great coach and will be a tremendous asset to our program,”” said Busch via Arizona Athletics. “”I respect him and admire his dedication to his athletes.””

    Following Hite to the desert is Erin Campbell, a senior transfer who graduated from Corona del Sol High School in Tempe, Ariz. Sophomore Hannah Ross, another former Husky, will also be swimming for her old coach in Tucson next season.
