Sox Re-Acquire Kason Gabbard from Rangers

The Red Sox re-acquired starting pitcher Kason Gabbard from the Texas Rangers Thursday afternoon for cash considerations. Gabbard was pitching in the minors to open the year, but has been a starter for Texas over the past couple seasons.

The left-hander has a 9-7 record and a 4.53 ERA in 34 career games (14 of which came with the Red Sox).

Gabbard was traded along with David Murphy on July 31, 2007 for RP Eric Gagne. That trade, along with the Celtics trade for Kevin Garnett, was one of the reasons Sports of Boston was born (see: the About Us section).
