Miami Marlins Non-Roster Invitees: Brad Boxberger

According to Joe Frisaro at MLB.COM, Brad Boxberger also received an invitation to major league camp as a non-roster player.

Boxberger, a six-foot-two, 205. lb. right-hander, was initially a first round choice of the Cincinnati Reds in the 2009 MLB Amateur Entry Draft, with the 43rd overall selection.

Now an eight-season MLB veteran, the 31-year-old Boxberger has appeared at baseball’s top level with the San Diego Padres (2012-2013), the Tampa Bay Rays (2014-2017), the Arizona Diamondbacks (2018) and the Kansas City Royals (2019).

A strikeout specialist and former closer, Boxberger saved 41 games for the Rays in 2015 to lead the American League.
