Red Sox land outfielder Tommy Pham in trade with Reds


The Boston Red Sox are getting down to business.

Boston has acquired outfielder Tommy Pham via trade with the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for cash considerations or a player to be named later, the team announced Monday night.ย ESPN's Jeff Passan was the first to report the deal.

The deal comes just minutes after the Red Sox reportedly agreed to trade catcher Christian Vazquez to the Houston Astros in exchange for two minor-league prospects.

Pham, 34, is hitting .238 with 11 home runs, 39 RBIs and 100 strikeouts through 91 games. He made headlines earlier this season for his involvement in a bizarre fantasy football beef with San Francisco Giants outfielder Joc Pederson.

It's likely there's more to come from the Red Sox, who appear very active ahead of Tuesday's 6 p.m. ET MLB trade deadline.
