He was chosen by the Red Sox as the seventh overall pick, but spent three seasons in minor leagues, before making his debut in1996 for the Red Sox, but played only two games before being sent back to the minors. He was recalled in 1998, and from1999 he became a consistent player for the Red Sox. With the team, he won the World Series in 2004 when they defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 4-0 in the series; he was a crucial part as he batted .357 and had 3 doubles and 3 RBIs.
