Wednesday, June 30th, 2004
In a hastily called press conference, Boston announced today a trade with Montreal that will send 23-year-old right fielder Ryan Raburn and 24-year-old shortstop Ramon Santiago to the Expos in exchange for 27-year-old starting pitcher Yuji Yoshimi, 39-year-old third baseman Chris Alvarez and 26-year-old third baseman Mike Hessman. All players are expected to be in their respective new cities in time for today's games.

So far this season Raburn has put up a .239 batting average with 71 hits, 25 home runs and 48 RBIs.

So far in 16 appearances this season, Yoshimi has recorded 4 wins and sustained 5 losses. He has pitched 80 innings, yielded 99 hits, fanned 76 and has a 4.61 ERA.
