The Boston Red Sox have added another arm to their pitching squad.

They acquired right-hander James Norwood from the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for cash consideration, both teams announced Saturday.

Norwood is a 28-year-old player who made his MLB debut with the Chicago Cubs in 2019. He has an 8.30 ERA, 22 strikeouts, nine walks, 24 hits allowed and a WHIP of 1.90 over 17 1/3 innings pitched with the Phillies this season.

Norwood, who was slated for assignment by the Phillies earlier this week, has been added to Boston’s roster of 40 players. He will likely fill a reliever role.

The last time the Red Sox took a chance on a Phillies pitcher was in 2020 when they acquired Nick Pivetta. This agreement worked quite well. This trade is another low-risk move for the Red Sox that could pay handsome dividends. A part of Norwood’s analyzes are quite strong.
