The Red Sox bullpen has another pitcher -- Jason Johnson. The former Cleveland righthander was obtained today in a trade for a player to be named later.
Johnson, 32, was designated for assignment yesterday. He was 3-8, 5.96 in 14 starts this year, but has always been a great ground ball pitcher: his GB-to-FB ratio this year (2.85-1) is third in the AL.
Kyle Snyder was optioned to Pawtucket.
