The Sox traded Javier Lopez to the Red Sox for David Riske. In eight appearances Riske is 0-1 with a 3.72 ERA. He's relatively young; he's 29 years old. Overall I like this trade. Riske has been pretty solid throughout his career, although his back has been balky at times. I know that Lopez was dominant in AAA, but he is a lefty and we already have two in the 'pen plus some others at AAA. My only regret is that we didn't get to see Lopez in action this season.
