    Red Sox trade for closer Andrew Bailey

    Buster Olney
    The Red Sox have acquired Andrew Bailey from Oakland... Details to come.
    Pete Abraham
    So the trade is RHP Andrew Bailey, OF Ryan Sweeney for OF Josh Reddick, Class A 1B Miles Head and Class A RHP Raul Alcantara
    as a side not. Yankees did sign former Red Sox lefty Hideki Okajima to a minor league deal. Dunno his deal. He pitched well for the Sox in the minors last year.. not sure why he was never called up.

    Loved how all winter we heard that the A's were looking for a big haul for Bailey... and then sent him to the Sox for almost nothing.

    Not exactly surprising. Bailey hasn't thrown 50 innings since his rookie campaign because of arm issues. Including elbow surgery last off-season.

    And he's in his first year of arbitration.
