Mark Melancon

News: Melancon was traded to the Boston Red Sox Wednesday.
Spin:
There are still plenty of free agent closers on the market and the Red Sox are presumed to be one of the favorites to land Andrew Bailey from the A's. With the news that the Red Sox plan to stretch Daniel Bard out to be a starter, Melancon would probably be the closer in Boston if the season started tomorrow. Don't bank on that actually being the case, though. The likelihood is that the Red Sox aren't done acquiring bullpen help. Expect him to be a setup man in Boston.
