Yesterday, the Richmond Times-Dispatch first reported that the Red Sox re-acquired RHP Brad Baker from the Braves to complete the Franklin Nunez trade. The Sox traded the Vermont born and Mass high school graduate to the Padres for Alan Embree. Baker was signed by the Braves this past Nov. After the Pads allowed him to be a free agent, he stated the Theo had contacted him, but the Red Sox Halloween B.S. likely got in the way of Baker inking a minor league deal with the Sox.

Now, the fastball-change up reliever, who has struck out at least one batter per inning, is back with the Sox. Baker joins a loaded bullpen in Pawtucket that includes uber prospect, Craig Hansen, Jermaine Van Buren with his sinker-slider combo, and the mid-90's fastball throwing Manny Delcarmen. They all have different styles but have a similar outcome - striking out about a batter per inning.

No performance measure is more important for a reliever than K/IN. The ability to miss bats has the best possibility to strand inherited runners. The Sox future pen situation appears to be in good hands and inexpensive hands.
