D-Backs send veteran Jarvis to Boston

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks traded veteran pitcher Kevin Jarvis to the Red Sox on Thursday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Jarvis, who turns 37 on Friday, was signed by Arizona last December as a Minor League free agent and received a non-roster invitation to Spring Training.

After an impressive start to the season for Triple-A Tucson, Jarvis had his contract purchased by the Diamondbacks on May 21, but did not get into a game until June 4. He was used in relief just four times before being given a spot-start on June 17 in Texas.

The Rangers roughed him up in that game for eight runs in five innings. Two days later, he was designated for assignment, cleared waivers and was assigned back to Tucson.

Jarvis owns a career record of 34-48 with a save and a 6.05 ERA spanning 183 games (114 starts).
