According to Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals have acquired shortstop Julio Lugo for outfielder Chris Duncan.
Busy day for the Red Sox. In Duncan, they're getting a 28-year-old outfielder with a glove and a body made for first base. He's been thought of as a lefty with power for his entire tenure with the Cardinals, but hasn't put up the numbers to back that claim in the past two years. He'll probably head to Triple-A. Lugo will split time with Brendan Ryan at shortstop in St. Louis.
