Player Notes
Red Sox acquired RHP Heath Hembree and LHP Edwin Escobar from the Giants for RHP Jake Peavy and cash considerations.

Advice: Hembree, a hard-throwing 25-year-old reliever, is expected to report to Triple-A Pawtucket. While he fell out of favor in San Francisco, it wouldn't be surprising to see him crack the Red Sox bullpen in short order.

Buster Olney of ESPN reports that the Red Sox will receive Heath Hembree and Edwin Escobar from the Giants in exchange for Jake Peavy.

Advice: The 25-year-old Hembree has served as the closer at Triple-A Fresno for the past three seasons, and owns a 3.89 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 46/13 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings on the year. Escobar, was ranked as Baseball America's 56th best prospect heading into the 2014 season, but has struggled with a 5.11 ERA over 20 starts in the PCL.
