The Boston Red Sox acquired pitcher Austin Davis from the Pittsburgh Pirates for infielder/outfielder Michael Chavis.

What does it give the Boston Red Sox
In Davis, the Red Sox add a left-handed reliever who may be able to carve out a niche as a middle reliever or situational lefty.

What does it give the Pittsburgh Pirates
Chavis was once considered a top prospect but his stock has fallen. Still, this is a great pickup for a Pirates team that needs to take a few shots.

Fantasy impact
Chavis may have some sleeper appeal with the Pirates, so he might be worth a speculative pickup down the stretch in some leagues. Davis has no fantasy value to speak of.
