Boston Red Sox Acquire Kyle Schwarber from Nats

SHARE:

The Red Sox have finally made a trade and will acquire All-Star slugger Kyle Schwarber from the Nationals. 

Boston will send pitching prospect Aldo Ramirez to Washington. The deal was first reported by Robert Murray of Fansided. 


To make room for the new slugger on the 40-man roster, the Red Sox designated Brandon Workman for assignment. 


Schwarber comes to the Red Sox hitting .253 with 25 homers, 53 RBIs and a .910 OPS. The left-handed slugger is on the injured list with a hamstring injury. 


The 28-year-old had a monster June before tweaking his hamstring. Schwarber hit 16 home runs contributing to a 1.122 OPS for the month.


The Red Sox will also have control over Schwarber for next season as well. He has a $11.5 million mutual option for 2022 with a $3 million buyout. 


It’s unclear where he’ll fit in for the Red Sox. Schwarber could play left field and they send Jarren Duran back down to Worcester. Schwarber has only played first base one time in his big league career. 


Ramirez will head to the Nats after climbing within the Red Sox prospects rankings. The 20-year-old righty who has posted a 2.03 ERA in eight starts in 31 innings for High-A Salem this season. He was ranked the 19th overall prospect in the Red Sox system according to MLB Pipeline.
