Red Sox claim utility man Taylor Motter off waivers originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Red Sox need all the depth they can get as they deal with a major COVID-19 outbreak within the organization.

They made a move to address the issue Thursday, claiming utility man Taylor Motter off waivers from the Colorado Rockies

Motter has bounced around the major leagues -- as well as overseas -- since making his MLB debut with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2016. He has since played for the Seattle Mariners, Minnesota Twins, and Rockies. The 31-year-old has played every position on the diamond but catcher.

In 13 games with Colorado this season, Motter slashed .227/.150/.377 with three hits in 20 at-bats.

The Red Sox have a whopping eight players on the COVID-related injured list heading into Thursday's series finale vs. the Rays. First pitch for the matchup is set for 7:10 p.m. ET.
