Red Sox News: Boston Signs Mitchell Boggs To Minor League Deal

The Boston Red Sox have signed pitcher Mitchell Boggs to a minor league deal, and they'll be hoping he can rediscover the form that saw him go 4-1 with a 2.21 ERA for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2012.

Boggs, no longer a contender for the best facial hair in baseball, has struggled mightily since his breakout season - in 2013, he was sent to the minors by May with an ERA of 12.66, and he was traded to the Colorado Rockies a few months later for an international signing bonus.

In 2014 minor league stints with the White Sox and Giants organizations, Boggs didn't do much better - his 8.59 ERA across last season made it easy for the Giants to let him walk. Boggs will make $750,000 if he makes the Red Sox roster, per WEEI's Rob Bradford.

Peter Gammons was first to report the story.
