BOSTON (AP) - The Red Sox have obtained Anthony Varvaro from the Atlanta Braves for Aaron Kurcz in a swap of right-handed pitchers.

Varvaro was 3-3 with a 2.63 ERA for the Braves last year, his fifth season in the majors. The Red Sox also sent cash to the Braves.

Boston is remaking its bullpen after letting Burke Badenhop and Scott Breslow become free agents and losing out on left-hander Andrew Miller, a free agent who signed with the New York Yankees.

In 61 relief outings last season, the 30-year-old Varvaro had 50 strikeouts and 13 walks. The Braves designated him for assignment on Monday.

Kurcz, 24, was 3-2 with a 2.14 ERA with Double-A Portland last season.
