Trade 3: Tommy Pham to Red Sox for a player to be named later
Chaim Bloom is bringing another former Tampa Bay Ray to Boston. The Sox acquired 34-year-old outfielder and notoriously calm Fantasy Baseball player Tommy Pham for a player to be named later.
Pham began his big-league career with the St. Louis Cardinals, and also spent time with the Rays and San Diego Padres before joining the Cincinnati Reds this year. He’s a career .261/.358/.438 hitter with a .796 OPS and a fair amount of power in his bat, though it’s diminished in recent years. He had three consecutive 20+ HR seasons from 2017-19, but no more than 15 in any year since.
This trade almost certainly guarantees the Sox aren’t done dealing away their own outfielders. Perhaps Jackie Bradley Jr. to the Phillies?
