The Boston Red Sox acquired closer Andrew Bailey and outfielder Ryan Sweeney from the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday for outfielder Josh Reddick.
The Red Sox also sent minor league third baseman Miles Head and 19-year-old hurler Raul Alcantera to the Athletics, according to ESPN.
Bailey posted an 0-4 mark with 24 saves and a 3.24 ERA last season. The acquisition of the 27-year-old righthander is the team's answer to the departure of Jonathan Papelbon to the Philadelphia Phillies.
Sweeney, 26, batted .265 with one homer and 25 RBIs in 108 games last season.
Reddick, 24, hit .280 with seven homers an 28 RBIs in 87 contests last campaign.
