Sox acquire Donnelly for Seibel

On Friday Boston bolstered its bullpen by acquiring right-handed setup man Brendan Donnelly from the LA Angels in exchange for minor league lefty Phil Seibel (pictured). In 2006, Donnelly went 6-0 with a 3.94 ERA over 62 games. Over his career, he has posted a 2.38 ERA for the Angels. Seibel had been in the Red Sox system since November 2003, but was sidelined for much of that time following Tommy John Surgery in 2005. The 27 year old lefty came back and pitched impressively in 2006, going 6-3 with a 1.24 ERA for Greenville, Portland, and Pawtucket. Seibel probably did not fit in Boston's bullpen plans for 2007, but stands a good chance of earning a spot in the Angels bullpen.
