It seems the Yankees are also sending a prospect in the deal which is basically just a salary dump. While Ottavino wasn’t great last year (2-3 record, 5.89 ERA), he had a 1.9 ERA in 2019 with the Yankees and a 6-5 record with two saves. With the Red Sox’s bullpen being pretty bad, Ottavino could see closing action.
