Outfielder/first baseman Mike Carp was picked up by the Texas Rangers Sunday after the Red Sox waived him Aug. 1.

Carp had asked the Red Sox to trade him after the All-Star break. He played a limited role this season, batting. .198 with nine RBIs in 42 games. He was put on the DL for a week in early July after fracturing his foot.

The Red Sox recalled RHP Steven Wright from Triple A Pawtucket Sunday after optioning Alex Wilson to Pawtucket after Saturday’s game. Wright was supposed to start for Pawtucket Sunday.
