OAKLAND (CBS/AP) – A person with knowledge of the negotiations says the Oakland Athletics have agreed to trade All-Star closer Andrew Bailey and outfielder Ryan Sweeney to the Boston Red Sox for outfielder Josh Reddick and prospects Miles Head and Raul Alcantara.

The person confirmed the deal, first reported by ESPN on Wednesday, to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because final details are still being worked out before a formal announcement from the clubs.

Bailey becomes the fourth key pitcher traded this month for the rebuilding A’s, who dealt starter Trevor Cahill and reliever Craig Breslow to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Dec. 9 and then sent Gio Gonzalez to Washington last Thursday.

The 24-year-old Reddick batted .280 with seven homers and 28 RBIs in 87 games for Boston in 2011.
