The Red Sox have traded Brent Lillibride to the Cleveland Indians for AA reliever, Jose De La Torre.
Lillibridge's time with the Red Sox was short and not at all sweet. His final line with the Red Sox looks like this. A .125 batting average (2/16), both for singles and 5 strikeouts in 10 games.
On the receiving end, I think the Red Sox traded up. De La Torre comes to the Red Sox farm system with a 7-1 record, a 2.80 ERA, with 42 strikeouts in 45 innings. We are not sure where he will end up, but it will likely be with Portland.
We all knew and hoped this day would come sooner than later. Now on to the next trade.
