Sox acquire Daniel Haigwood

Yesterday evening, the Boston Red Sox announced that the acquisition of LHP Daniel Haigwood from the Texas Rangers for RHP Scott Shoemaker and cash. Haigwood, who had been designated for assignment by Texas, was assigned to the Sox 40 man roster and optioned to AA Portland. The 6' 5" 23 year old split last season between AA Reading (Phillies) and AA Frisco (Rangers) going a combined 3-7 with a 3.58 ERA in 27 starts (146 IP). A 16th round pick in '02 by the Chicago White Sox, Haigwood missed the 2003 season following knee surgery (left ACL), was traded to Philadelphia in the Jim Thome trade and to Texas in '06 for LHP Fabio Castro. Haigwood's best pitch is his curve, his arsenal also features a good change up, sinker and a fringe-average fastball (four seam), reportedly in the 88-92 MPH range. While having a generally successful (if at times uneven) career in the Red Sox system, Shoemaker is not regarded as a prospect, but offers good minor league depth.
