Red Sox acquire Boof Bonser


The Red Sox have acquired pitcher Boof Bonser from the Minnesota Twins, according to Bonser's agent Larry Reynolds. The Twins will receive a player to be named later or cash considerations in exchange for the big right-hander, who missed all of 2009 after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder in February.

Bonser, 28, a first round selection of the San Francisco Giants in the 2000 amateur draft, had previously been designated for assignment by the Twins on December 8. In three Major League seasons, Bonser is 18-25 with a 5.12 ERA in 96 games, including 60 starts, with 317 strikeouts in 391.2 innings pitched. Across eight minor league seasons, he has compiled a 3.63 ERA with 917 strikeouts in 886.2 innings pitched.

Bonser is perhaps best known for being traded, with Francisco Liriano and Joe Nathan, to Minnesota in 2003 for catcher A.J. Pierzynski.
