The Red Sox announced the acquisition of righty Victor Santos from the Phillies Saturday afternoon.
Boston dealt longtime infield prospect C.J. Chatham to Philadelphia on January 18th, for a player to be named later. The PTNBL ended up being Santos.
Santos, 21, has spent the past five seasons in the Phillies organization, after being signed as an international free agent. The righty has had a combined 13 appearances this season between High-A and Double-A (four with AA), while posting a 2.20 ERA through the two levels across 41 innings.
He has pitched out of both the bullpen and the rotation, as four of his four appearances with Double-A have been starts, while just one of his nine appearances with High-A have been starts.
The Red Sox dealt Chatham after four seasons in the minors, as he hit .298 between 110 games in both Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket (90 games in AA, 20 in AAA). The right-handed bat blasted five homers to go along with a .741 OPS before spending all of 2020 at the Red Sox’s alternate training site in Pawtucket.
