Red Sox Sign Romero, Trade for Donnelly

Friday, December 15, 2006

The Red Sox traded Phil Seibel to the Angels for Brendon Donnelly. Donnelly is the option for closer, but will most likely be a fallback if they are unable to acquire someone. He went 6-0 with a 3.94 ERA and 53 K. Seibel, 27, had a great season in all the levels of the Red Sox minor league system. He pitched in 80 innings with 1.24 ERA. The Red Sox also signed J.C. Romero to a one year deal. Romero, 30, was 1-2 with a 6.70 ERA in 65 appearances for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in 2006. He held left handed batters to a .211 average.

if the Red Sox can't find a closer, then why not use Timlin and use Donnelly and Romero as setup men? Grant it they will more then likely find a closer, but I think Timlin would be a better bet to close then Donnelly.

Just what the Angels need, more young pitching.
