BOSTON (AP) — The Red Sox have acquired All-Star closer Joel Hanrahan from the Pittsburgh Pirates in a six-player deal.


Boston completed the trade Wednesday, also receiving infielder Brock Holt. The Red Sox gave up right-handers Mark Melancon and Stolmy Pimentel, infielder Ivan DeJesus Jr. and first baseman-outfielder Jerry Sands.


Over the past two seasons, the right-handed Hanrahan had 76 saves, fourth most in the L, and a 2.24 ERA. Last season, he was 5-2 with a 2.72 ERA and 36 saves.


Holt spent most of last season at Double-A Altoona, then hit .292 in 24 games with the Pirates, all in September.
