Sox Obtain RHP Burke Badenhop From Brewers

The Red Sox have made a trade! Hold your horses, it's not Matt Kemp coming to town yet. However, one Burke Badenhop (not to be confused with Boris Badenof) will be on the way to Fenway from the Brewers. Boston sent 20-year old LHP Luis Ortega to Milwaukee for the right-handed reliever. Historically, Badenhop has had great success against righties—holding them to a .229 average last year. It remains to be seen where or whether Badenhop fits into Boston's bullpen plans.
