Red Sox make late trade for Bedard

The Red Sox finally made their 2011 trade deadline splash this afternoon, landing lefty Erik Bedard from the Mariners.

The Red Sox finally made their 2011 trade deadline splash this afternoon, landing lefty Erik Bedard from the Mariners.



Boston gave up a package centered on Double-A catcher Tim Federowicz -- a seemingly small price to pay in exchange for a former ace. Federowicz was dealt to the Dodgers as part of a three-team deal.



Bedard has stunning stuff, but he's struggled with injuries throughout his career. He hasn't started more than 20 games in a season since 2007.



Bedard, 32, gave up five runs in his return from the DL on Friday.



Boston had reportedly finished a deal for Rich Harden on Saturday, but the trade fell apart over the righty's health.
