The Red Sox offered a minor league contract to reliever Joe Borowski, who was released by the Indians about a month ago. He’s not the setup man acquisition fans hoped for, but there’s no risk in adding him.
Borowski, 37, posted a 7.56 ERA in 16.2 innings this year. He injured his triceps in a spring game, and that lingered into May. The Indians had picked up his $4MM option in November of ’07.
