The American League East-leading Boston Red Sox acquired All-Star outfielder Kyle Schwarber from the Washington Nationals on Thursday, it was announced.
Schwarber, 28, is on the injured list with a right hamstring strain but is expected to be back within a week or so. He had a monster June before getting hurt, hitting 16 home runs that contributed to a 1.122 OPS for the month.
Schwarber is batting .253 with 25 home runs and 53 RBIs in 2021. He was named to his first All-Star team this year.
