Joel Hanrahan trade: Jerry Sands, Stolmy Pimentel reportedly in deal

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

The two Red Sox prospects are reportedly included in the Joel Hanrahan trade, according to ESPN.

Outfielder Jerry Sands and minor-league pitcher Stolmy Pimentel are going to the Pittsburgh Pirates in the rumored deal that will send Joel Hanrahan to the Boston Red Sox, according to ESPN's Jim Bowden.

Sands appeared in 70 games over the past two seasons for the Dodgers before going to the Red Sox in the Adrian Gonzalez trade. The 25-year-old outfielder has hit .244 with four home runs and 27 RBI in 251 career plate appearances. He has had more success at the AAA level, where he hit .296 with 26 home runs last season, and has shown plus power in the minor leagues.

Pimentel, a 22-year-old right-hander from the Dominican Republic, started 22 games for the double-A Portland Sea Dogs last season, going 6-7 with a 4.59 ERA. Pimentel has a big frame at 6'4, 225 lbs. He throws a four-seam fastball that tops out at 95, to go along with a plus change and an average slider. He has struggled with consistency and his fastball command is seen to have back-of-the-rotation potential at the major league level.
