Red Sox sign Eveland to Minor League deal
The Red Sox added some left-handed depth to their pitching staff on Wednesday, signing veteran southpaw Dana Eveland to a Minor League deal with an invitation to Major League Spring Training, according to Chris Cotillo of SB Nation.
Eveland, 31, spent last season in a relief role with the Mets, racking up a respectable 2.63 ERA over 27 1/3 innings in 30 appearances. Eveland has pitched for eight teams during his nine-year Major League career, often bouncing back-and-forth between the rotation the the bullpen.
If Eveland indeed makes the club out of Spring Training, he has the potential to land a middle relief role with the Red Sox, while also providing some added insurance for the rotation.
