Red Sox acquire Adam Ottavino from New York

USA Today Sports

The Boston Red Sox acquired pitcher Adam Ottavino, prospect Frank German and cash considerations from the New York Yankees.

The Yankess will receive a player to be named later or cash considerations in the future.

Seems like a cash dump for the Yankess, who are trying to stay under the $210 million luxury tax threshold for the upcoming season.

Ottavino is owed $8 million in salary this season with a $3 million signing bonus, which is deferred to 2022.

According to ESPN, the Yankess are also paying $850,000 as part of the deal.

If healthy, Ottavino could help Boston save games in the upcoming season in the final year of his current deal.
