Report: Mirabelli's back

By David Lefort, Boston.com Staff


It appears Johnny Damon won’t be the only player making his return to Fenway tonight.


According to ESPN The Magazine’s Buster Olney, the Red Sox have re-acquired Doug Mirabelli from the Padres in exchange for catcher Josh Bard, minor-league pitcher Cla Meredith, a player to be named later, and cash. Olney also reported that Mirabelli is expected to be in the starting lineup -- and catch Tim Wakefield -- for tonight’s Red Sox-Yankees game at Fenway.


The Sox had dealt Mirabelli to San Diego for second baseman Mark Loretta in December.


Bard had filled Mirabelli’s role as Tim Wakefield’s personal catcher, but had struggled catching the knuckleball. He leads the majors with 10 passed balls.


Olney also reported that the Yankees tried to obtain Mirabelli as well to keep him from returning to the Red Sox.
