The World Series champions aren't resting on their laurels.

The Boston Red Sox are "on the verge" of acquiring relief pitcher Colten Brewer in a trade with the San Diego Padres, The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported Tuesday, citing a source.

Brewer pitched in just 11 games for the Padres last season, posting a 5.59 ERA with 10 runs allowed on 15 hits in 9 2/3 innings. He recorded 10 strikeouts to seven walks.
