The Boston Red Sox acquired right-hander Brad Peacock from the Cleveland Indians on Monday in exchange for cash considerations.
The 33-year-old veteran was not on the Indians’ 40-man roster, making him eligible for the postseason roster for the Red Sox.
Peacock signed a minor league contract with Cleveland in June. He was 0-4 with a 7.68 ERA in 11 games (10 starts) for Triple-A Columbus this season, striking out 38 batters and walking 14 in 34 innings.
He owns a 34-30 lifetime record with a 4.01 ERA and three saves in 181 games (83 starts) with the Washington Nationals (2011) and Houston Astros (2013-20). His best season was 2017 when he went 13-2 with a 3.00 ERA and won a World Series ring with Houston.
