The 30-year old Vavaro went 3-3 with a 2.63 ERA in 54.2 innings with the Braves last year. He also put up a decent 1.079 WHIP in 2014.

The Red Sox didn't necessarily need another right-handed reliever, but they have the space to acquire one at the moment, and a decent depth piece became available when the Braves designated Anthony Varvaro for assignment. The Sox plucked him from the Braves in exchange for cash and minor-league arm, Aaron Kurcz, who you might remember as part of the Theo Epstein compensation from 2012. Varvaro, 30, spent the last four seasons with the Braves, but didn't become a full-time reliever for them in the...
