Red Sox Trade For Kyle Schwarber

On the eve of Friday's Trade Deadline, the Red Sox acquired left-handed slugger Kyle Schwarber from the Nationals. Schwarber, 28, tied a major league record by hitting 12 home runs in a 10-game span (June 19-29), is currently on the injured list with a strained right hamstring.

Schwarber (a left fielder) has hit .253/.340/.570 with 25 dongs and 53 RBIs in 72 games this season. He set a major league record in June for the most home runs as a leadoff hitter in a calendar month (15). I'm not sure if that is a thing, but that's what he did. From June 12-29, Schwarber batted .348/.403/1.043 with 16 homers and 27 RBIs.
