Sox sign RP Boggs to minor league deal

The Red Sox have agreed to terms on a minor league deal with right-handed reliever Mitchell Boggs, according to multiple reports.

The deal includes an invitation to spring training. Boggs will make $750,000 if he makes the team, according to WEEI.com.

Boggs, 30, has spent the majority of his six-year career pitching out of the St. Louis Cardinals’ bullpen. He was an effective set-up man from 2010-12 -- finishing 54 games over those three seasons -- before struggling in 2013, a year in which he was given the opportunity to close for the Cardinals after a season-ending injury to Jason Motte. Later that season, he was dealt to the Colorado Rockies, who opted to non-tender him during the offseason.

Boggs spent all of 2014 in the minors between the Chicago White Sox and San Francisco Giants organizations. He owns a 4.12 lifetime ERA in the majors.
