One team in this deal is clearly over the train tracks and is four games away from winning their third World Series championship since the 2004 season.
Can you guess which team it is? Yup, that’s exactly right, the Boston Red Sox. Now even though they’re still alive and well in the post-season, this team has continued to make moves in preparation of the 2014 season and beyond.
I believe this is around the third or fourth trade this team has been apart of in the last couple of weeks. I know they acquired an infielder not too long ago and now they picked up an outfielder from the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Dodgers agree’d to trade Alex Castellanos to the Boston Red Sox for minor league outfielder Jeremy Hazelbaker. Castellanos was designated for assignment not too long ago, so a move like this was very possible.
Castellanos has played in nearly 850 minor league games at the Triple-A level. He’s hit a career 291/.313/.374 batting line at that level with 36 home runs and 35 stolen bases.
Now with Castellanos coming into the organization, the Red Sox have decided to designated Pedro Beato for assignment.
The 27 year old pitcher worked 10 innings this season for the Red Sox and gave up five runs, four of those runs being earned. Beato owns a career ERA mark of 4.55.
