Red Sox Acquire Lefty KC Reliever Verdugo

In a deal that defines the term "huh?", the Red Sox traded for a minor-league lefty reliever in the Kansas City Royals system—Ryan Verdugo. If anyone out there knows anything about Verdugo or what he might bring to the table, please send a message to FenwayNation via carrier pigeon. The only things we can convey to you are: he's 27 years old, he has a 5-2 record for the AAA Omaha Storm Chasers and sports an ERA of 4.24. Oh, and, of course, the lame Hitchcokian reference embodied in our photo of said Mr. Verdugo. Get it? See what we did there?
