Report: Giants trade Eduardo Nunez to Red Sox

Eduardo Nunez's time with the Giants is up as they have reportedly traded the third baseman to the Boston Red Sox.

Fox Sports was the first to report the news.

The Giants will acquire two minor league pitchers, according to USA Today.

Nunez was lifted for pinch-hitter in the bottom of the fifth inning Tuesday night and was seen hugging teammates as he left the dugout.

In 75 games with the Giants this season, Nunez hit .308/.334/.417 with 21 doubles, four home runs, 29 RBI and 17 stolen bases.

Nunez was acquired from the Twins last summer for two prospects.
