Red Sox get setup man Thornburg from Brewers for INF Shaw

OXON HILL, Md. (AP) Even before landing Chris Sale, the Boston Red Sox got the man they wanted - a setup man, in fact.

The AL East champions locked down their eighth-inning spot Tuesday, acquiring right-hander Tyler Thornburg from the Milwaukee Brewers in a package that included infielder Travis Shaw.

Relief pitchers have been a main focus across the majors this offseason, and Thornburg was the centerpiece in the first trade at baseball's winter meetings.
