BOSTON RED SOX BULLPEN STRENGTHENED BY ANDREW BAILEY TRADE WITH THE A’S
Thu, 29 Dec 2011 03:58 PM EST

The Oakland Athletics traded All-Star closer Andrew Bailey and outfielder Ryan Sweeney to the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday for outfielder Josh Reddick and infield prospect Miles Head and junior league pitcher Raul Alcantara.

“I’m excited, obviously,” Bailey announced. “It’s an association that continues to win each year and they’re definitely a challenger each and every year. NFL lines

“I’m thankful that the Boston Red Sox saw value in me. I’d be lying if I were to say I wasn’t pumped up about being a Red Sox.”

In the deal, Bailey gives the Boston Red Sox a reliable ninth-inning guy to replace the departed Jonathan Papelbon, who confirmed a $50 million, four-year contract as a independent agent with the Philadelphia Phillies in November. NFL betting lines

“Andrew’s a real high quality closer in the American League. He’s done it for three years and has had a lot of success,” asserted general manager Ben Cherington. “He’s converted a high proportion of his prospects. He’s got the stuff and we really like his makeup for Boston.”

Bailey — the 2009 AL Greenhorn of the Year who made the All-Star team that season and again in 2010 — has been the subject of trade talk this offseason.

The right-handed Bailey, Twenty-seven, went 0-4 with a 3.24 Time and Twenty-four saves in 41 2 / Three innings over 42 appearances this year. He spent time on the disabled list for the second straight season, pitching for the first time in 2011 on May Twenty-nine after being sidelined with a strained right forearm.

“We had an opportunity to look into Bailey’s medical history and we got to grasp lots more about what he’s been through,” Cherington announced. “He had Tommy John surgery five years back and has entirely recovered from that. He had some elbow symptoms in 2010 and had a minor procedure after the 2010 season. Then he came into spring training in 2011, perhaps ramped up too fast and had a reversal and ( there ) seemed to be some scar tissue breakup.

“It was a minor scar tissue injury and he managed to recover from that and get back to pitching and perform well. His stuff and performance was solid down the stretch. We’re very confident he’ll come into camp good to go and ready to help our team in 2012.”

Bailey becomes the 4th key pitcher traded this month by the rebuilding Oakland Athletics , who dealt starter Trevor Cahill and reliever Craig Breslow to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Dec. Nine and then sent left-handed starter Gio Gonzalez to Washington last Thursday.

“There’s nothing like the atmosphere of running in from the bullpen at Fenway Park,” Bailey asserted. “You can’t put it into words. It’s something I look forward to doing day in and day out in a Red Sox uniform. Fenway is the best stadium in baseball and to be well placed to pitch in that uniform, and in that stadium, is something I can never forget.”

Reddick, who commenced last season at Triple-A Pawtucket before being promoted in late May, will look to fill an enormous void in Oakland’s open outfield.

The 24-year-old Reddick batted .280 with seven homers and 28 RBIs in 87 games for Boston in 2011. He will play any outfield spot and likely will get instant action for the A’s, who already lost outfielders David DeJesus and Josh Willingham in free agency. Center fielder Coco Crisp isn’t expected to return either.

Oakland director Billy Beane is retooling his register for the future in hopes the franchise will get the go-ahead to build a new ballpark some Forty miles south in San Jose regardless of the San Francisco Giants ‘ owning the territorial rights to technology-rich Santa Clara County. Beane and owner Lew Wolff have said they are expecting to hear shortly from commissioner Bud Selig, and Beane declared the unsettled stadium situation will affect his capability to sign his very own independent agents this winter.

The A’s ( 74-88 ) haven’t posted a winning record or earned a playoff berth since being swept in the 2006 AL Championship Series by Detroit.

At last summer’s trade deadline, the A’s and Red Sox were near completion on a deal that would have sent Oakland right-hander Rich Harden to Boston for Triple-A first baseman Lars Anderson, nevertheless it fell thru late due to Harden’s lengthy list of injury issues.

Former Boston Red Sox pitching coach Curt Young returned to the A’s this offseason to work under chief Bob Melvin.

Head, a first baseman, batted .299 with Twenty-two home runs and 82 RBIs in 129 games with two of the Boston Red Sox’s Class An affiliates , at Greenville and Salem.

The right-handed Alcantara, 19, mixed for a 1-4 record and a 2.20 Time in Thirteen starts with Class A Lowell and the Red Sox affiliate in the Gulf Coast League. He struck out Fifty and walked just Twelve while holding opponents to a .208 batting average.
