Report: Many teams stunned by Red Sox trade for Brad Ziegler


The Boston Red Sox recently swung a trade for Arizona closer Brad Ziegler, and it reportedly caught a lot of teams off guard.

According to Peter Gammons, while many teams knew Ziegler was available and were pursuing him, the Red Sox gave up much less than other teams were willing to.

Boston got Ziegler for two modestly rated prospects, which is no small feat in what is sure to be a sellers’ market. A lot of teams need relief help, and if they really were prepared to part with more than Boston gave up, you can understand their frustration, particularly since Boston pulled it off while still having such a transparent need in the bullpen.
