Former CofC P Godfrey Traded To Red Sox


Former College of Charleston Pitcher Graham Godfrey was traded to the Boston Red Sox on Friday to complete a trade with the Oakland A's from last month. 

The Red Sox announced the 28 year old would be assigned to Triple-A Pawtucket to begin the season. 

"I'm thankful for everything the A's and their fans have done for me." Godfrey said on his Twitter account. "I'm excited for change and a new opportunity with the Red Sox."

Godfrey was a 34th round pick of the Toronto Blue Jays in the 2006 MLB Draft. After the 2007 season he was traded to Oakland in a deal that included last year's World Series MVP Marco Scutaro. 

He made his Major League debut in June of 2011 against the White Sox. Godfrey would begin 2012 on the A's big league roster and has totaled 46 innings pitched in 10 major league games going 1-6 with a 5.09 ERA. 

Godfrey's most successful times have come in Sacramento for Oakland's Triple-A team. He led the Pacific Coast League with 14 wins in 2011 and was named an all-star and the organization's pitcher of the year. He was also an all-star in 2012. 

He spent 2006 with CofC going 8-2 with a 3.57 ERA helping lead the Cougars to the NCAA Super Regionals.
