In a surprising move, the Red Sox trade relief pitchers Brandon Workman and Heath Hembree to the Philadelphia Phillies for right-handed pitchers Nick Pivetta and Connor Seabold.

Boston also sent cash considerations and a player to be named later or cash considerations to the Phillies.

the 27-year-old Pivetta has allowed 10 earned runs in 5 2/3 innings thus far in 2020. Seabold is 11-10 during his minor league career with a 3.52 ERA in 40 outings. It is expected that both pitchers will be assigned to the Red Sox alternate training site.

Workman has allowed three earned runs, eight hits, and four walks while striking out eight in 6 2/3 innings this season (seven outings). He has converted 4-of-4 save opportunities. Hembree posted a 1.86 ERA his first 10 relief appearances this season. But his ERA skyrocketed to 5.59 after Tuesday’s rough outing. Workman is a free agent after this season, as Hembree is under contract through 2021. The Phillies got two solid arms to help boost their bullpen, while the Red Sox have officially started their fire sale.
