    Red Sox acquire Joel Hanrahan; named closer for 2013

    BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox are moving toward acquiring closer Joel Hanrahan from the Pittsburgh Pirates, according to multiple sources. However, one official cautioned that there was "still work to be done."

    More On The Red Sox

    Gordon Edes and the rest of the ESPNBoston.com team have the Red Sox covered for you. Blog
    Hanrahan saved a total of 76 games over the last two seasons for the Pirates and is a year away from free agency. With incumbent closer Andrew Bailey still a question mark after a season in which he was injured for most of the year, then pitched ineffectively, it makes sense that the Sox would explore bullpen upgrades.

    It is unclear what the Pirates would be getting back in return. Pittsburgh has been looking for pitching, primarily starters, but just came to terms with Francisco Liriano.

    One major league source said Pittsburgh is seeking a "significant return" for Hanrahan, an All-Star in each of the last two seasons. He earned $4.1 million in 2012 and can expect a significant bump in salary arbitration, to close to $7 million.

    Red Sox close to getting Joel*Hanrahan

    If it means just giving up 40 man fodder it would be ok I guess to clear up room.

    This worries me. Cherington overvalues relievers that have been closers. He got burned in both deals last year, I hope hes learned his lesson.

    I think Iggy blows and I'd be upset if we gave him up for Hanrahan.

    Depending on the cost I like the aquisition. Pitching is valuable in all forms.
