The Trade - July 27 Red Sox acquire RHP Rolando Arrojo, 2B Mike Lansing, RHP Rick Croushore Colorado Rockies acquire RHP Jeff Taglienti, 2B Jeff Frye, RHP Brian Rose, RHP John Wasdin Did it help? The five-player trade brought Arrojo, a one-time All-Star with Tampa Bay, to Boston to fill out the Red Sox's rotation, while also swapping second basemen Lansing and Frye and prospects. In 13 starts for the Sox that year, Arrojo went 5-2 with a 5.05 ERA. He spent the next two seasons both starting and coming out of the bullpen with the Red Sox before retiring. The Red Sox did not make the playoffs in any of the years that Arrojo was on the team. Rose, once a top prospect in the Red Sox organization, lasted just one more season in the majors.
