Red Sox Pick Up Gagne In Deadline Deal

The Boston Red Sox traded for Texas Rangers' reliever Eric Gagne in exchange for starter Kason Gabbard and minor league outfielders David Murphy and Engel Beltre. Gagne who just a few seasons back was one of MLB's elite closers, seems to have his health back after undergoing two operations on his elbow as well as back surgery. Gagne will only add depth to the back end of the Boston bullpen which already has two All-Stars in closer Jonathan Paplebon, and setup man Hideki Okajima who were on the American League squad earlier this month.
