Cardinals trade Joe Kelly, Allen Craig for Boston’s Lackey

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) The Cardinals have traded Allen Craig and Joe Kelly to the Boston Red Sox for pitcher John Lackey.

The trade comes before Thursday’s non-waiver trade deadline.

Joe Kelly pitched Wednesday night against the Padres in San Diego. The Cards lost 12-1.

John Lackey has an 11-7 record this season, with a 3.60 ERA. He will join Justin Masterson, acquired from Cleveland Wednesday, as a part of the Cardinals rotation. He is under contract through 2015 for $500,000.

In a twist of events, Kelly and Craig will be back in St. Louis very soon; next week, in fact. The Red Sox will be in St. Louis for a 3-game series from August 5-7
