Boston Red Sox Swing Trade For Right-Handed Pitcher

The Boston Red Sox have bolstered their pitching depth with the acquisition of Vladimir Gutierrez from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for cash.

Gutierrez, a 28-year-old right-handed pitcher originally signed by the Cincinnati Reds after defecting from Cuba, brings both experience and potential to the Red Sox rotation.

Gutierrez's versatility and impressive arm make him a valuable asset, providing depth and flexibility to the team's pitching rotation.

With key arms like Lucas Giolito, Garrett Whitlock, and Nick Pivetta sidelined due to injuries, Gutierrez's arrival offers immediate reinforcement for the Red Sox as they navigate the demands of the season.

Over his three-year MLB career, the 28-year-old holds a 5.47 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, with 121 strikeouts across 154.2 innings and 33 appearances (30 starts).
