The Boston Red Sox have traded reliever Manny Delcarmen and cash to the Colorado Rockies for minor league pitcher Chris Balcom-Miller.

The Red Sox have faded in the AL playoff race while the Rockies headed into Tuesday night’s game trying to stay close in the NL wild-card chase.

Delcarmen was 3-2 with a 4.70 ERA in 48 games for Boston this season. The right-hander has been especially tough on lefty hitters, holding them to a .165 batting average.

The 28-year-old Delcarmen has been a key member of the Red Sox bullpen for several years, and pitched in Boston’s sweep of Colorado in the 2007 World Series.

Balcom-Miller is a 21-year-old righty. He went 6-7 with a 3.31 ERA in 19 starts at Single-A Asheville this season.

    I don’t know what you mean by a “pseudo prospect,” but the guy is expected to be a middle of the rotation starter and we would control him in the big leagues for 6 seasons (we only had Delcarmen for 2 more years). it makes sense
