The Boston Red Sox have acquired minor league pitcher and 2007 8th-round draft pick Daniel Turpen from San Francisco to complete a trade deadline deal that sent reliever Ramon Ramirez to the Giants, according to WEEI's Rob Bradford.

The 6-3, 230-pound Turpen turns twenty-four this August and has posted a 2.69 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP in over 220 composite minor-league innings. While Turpen has naturally been most dominant at the Single-A level, his 2010 numbers at Double-A Richmond haven't been quite as impressive.

This year, Turpen has put up a 4.09 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP for the Flying Squirrels. Although his H/9 ratio is an unfortunate 9.8, the former Oregon State righty has a 7.5 K/9 ratio and a 0.7 HR/9 ratio this year.
