The Red Sox solved a utility infielder issue with a minor deal Wednesday, sending lefthander Franklin Morales to the Colorado Rockies for switch-hitter Jonathan Herrera.

Herrera, 29, appeared in 81 games last season for Colorado and hit .292 with a ..336 OBP and a .701 OPS. He can play second, short, third, and has played the outfield.
