From a Red Sox Press Release:
The Boston Red Sox today acquired righthander Jason Johnson and a cash consideration from the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named or cash. Executive Vice President/General Manager Theo Epstein made the announcement.
This is funny. Just this morning, seeing that the Tribe had let him go, I wondered to myself “Could he possibly help the Yankees rotation?”
Looking into it more, the answer was “No!” (That’s why I didn’t write about it here.)
I think the only thing he provides is a view of just how bad the back end of the rotation is for Boston this year.
If Jason Johnson is better than what you have there – you don’t have much at all.
