The Red Sox acquire Boof Bonser


OK, so the Sox did one thing before they left town: they got Boof Bonser, the pitcher who was DFA’d by the Twins the other day.

As Aaron mentioned the other day, Bonser was a starter who ultimately lost his job due to not being a very good starter in 2008.  Then he had rotator cuff surgery last February.  He could be a useful reliever, as he has a 55/16 K/BB ratio in 52
innings out of the pen.
