The defending World Series champion Red Sox have acquired reliever Burke Badenhop from the Brewers in exchange for a minor-league pitcher, the Brewers announced on Friday.

Badenhop, who'll turn 31 in February, is a six-year veteran who's also played for the Marlins and Rays.

This past season, he made 63 appearances, going 2-3 with a 3.47 ERA in 62 1/3 innings, with 42 strikeouts and 12 walks. He's much better against right-handed hitting (those batters hit .229 against him last year) than lefties (.338).

The Brewers acquired Badenhop in a trade with the Rays last December. He is eligible for his third year of salary arbitration this offseason after he made $1.55 million in 2013.
