Red Sox Make A Trade! (Don't Get Too Excited)

The Red Sox made a minor transaction today—and we do mean minor. Boston acquired right-handed middle reliever Anthony Varvaro from the Atlanta Braves in exchange for minor league pitcher Aaron Kurcz. Vavaro might make it onto the 2015 roster—but if I were him, I wouldn't sign any leases in the Greater Boston area. The 30-year old Vavaro went 3-3 with a 2.63 ERA in 54.2 innings with the Braves last year. He also put up a decent 1.079 WHIP in 2014. Depending on how Anthony Ranaudo and Brandon Workman look in Spring Training, Vavaro could stick.
