David Aardsma Traded To Red Sox By Tim Dierkes | January 28, 2008 at 12:15pm CDT According to the Boston Globe, the Red Sox acquired reliever David Aardsma today from the White Sox for minor league pitchers Willy Mota and Miguel Socolovich. Aardsma, 26, was a first-round pick of the Giants in ’03. He started a bit in the minors in ’03 but has mostly pitched as a reliever. If nothing else, Aardsma still throws hard. Maybe John Farrell can fix him up.
