Outfielder Adam Hyzdu was sent to the Padres for right-handed reliever Blaine Neal.
Neal will turn 26 shortly after Opening Day. In 40 games last season with San Diego, he was 1-1 with a 4.07 ERA. He spent the previous three seasons with Florida, and compiled a 3-0 record in 54 appearances. ... Hyzdu, 33, would have been a 4th or 5th outfielder if he made the Red Sox roster. Discussion.
