Red Sox complete trade with Pirates, name Hanrahan closer

The Red Sox have finished off a six-player trade with the Pirates that centered around righthanded reliever Joel Hanrahan, and manager John Farrell has told Hanrahan that he would be the closer going into spring training, Red Sox assistant general manager Brian O’Halloran said.

O’Halloran, speaking to reporters this afternoon as general manager Ben Cherington was traveling, said that Farrell spoke to Hanrahan and Andrew Bailey and told them that Hanrahan would be the closer going into spring training with Bailey as one of the set-up men.
