New Bullpen Arms


What the above link says is that the Red Sox have now agreed to sign Dan Wheeler. He and Bobby Jenks are the major new acquisitions in the Red Sox bullpen, but the team has signed numerous other players in the last couple of weeks that will be given the opportunity to make the team out of Spring Training.

Bobby Jenks is the most intriguing name as he is a former closer with the White Sox. Jenks was 1-3 with a 4.44 ERA and 61 strikeouts in 52.2 innings. He saved 27 games.

Dan Wheeler has pitched the last three and a half years for the Rays, making him battle-tested in the AL East. He went 2-4 with a 3.35 ERA and 46 strikeouts in 48.1 innings.

Matt Albers, Andrew Miller, Brandon Duckworth, Jason Bergmann, Clevelan Santeliz, Randy Williams, Rich Hill, and Ryan Harvey will also compete. Suddenly, the Red Sox bullpen looks pretty strong.
