On July 22, 2003, Boston acquired Scott Sauerbeck and Mike Gonzalez from the Pirates for Brandon Lyon and Anastacio Martinez. The Pirates said Lyon had fraying in his elbow and placed him on the disabled list on July 25. The Red Sox maintained he was healthy and had pitched for them two days before the trade. Sauerbeck turned in a 6.48 ERA for the Sox, walking 18 batters in 16 innings.
