The White Sox claimed 25-year-old first baseman Lars Anderson from the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Anderson, rated as the Red Sox' No. 1 prospect in 2009, had one hit in eight at-bats with Boston last season. At AAA Pawtucket he batted .259 with nine home runs and 52 RBI. Anderson was traded to Cleveland on July 31 and finished the season with Class AAA Columbus.

In 30 career games over three major-league seasons with Boston, Anderson is 8-for-48 (.167) with four RBI.
