BOSTON PICKS UP PITCHER YACKSEL RIOS
The Boston Red Sox acquired pitcher Yacksel Rios from the Seattle Mariners for cash.
What does it give the Boston Red Sox
In Rios, the Red Sox add a right-handed reliever who has bounced around quite a bit since 2019. In Boston, he will add organizational depth.
What does it give the Seattle Mariners
The Mariners had designated Rios for assignment recently, so they did well to get back cash for his services. He struggled in Seattle this season.
There is no fantasy impact here, as Rios will be merely a depth reliever for Boston in 2021.
