The Boston Red Sox have traded struggling righty reliever Ramon Ramirez to the San Francisco Giants at the 2010 MLB trade deadline.

While Ramirez has been less than effective in the American League this season, the Red Sox have been actively shopping him to National League clubs with whom he might experience a resurgence, including the New York Mets.

A Rule-5 pick from the Kansas City Royals, Ramirez has put up relatively horrible numbers this season after experiencing a dominant 2009 in Boston. A year ago, Ramirez posted a 2.84 ERA and a 6.72 K/9 ratio. While Ramirez continues to fan batters at a similar rate, he has produced an inflated 4.46 ERA in 2010.

The details of the deal remain unknown, but it is unlikely the Red Sox acquired a Major League player in the trade.
