Red Sox Notes: Bergmann, Wakefield

A couple of items from Beantown..

  • The Red Sox have voided the minor league contract of Jason Bergmann, according to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe.  The hurler came to camp with a shoulder injury and has been unable to pitch.  Boston signed the right-hander in December after he posted a 2.84 ERA with 9.9 K/9 in 43 relief appearances for Washington's Triple-A affiliate in 2010.  The 29-year-old has a 5.04 ERA with 6.9 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9 across parts of six seasons with the Nats.
  • Knuckleballer Tim Wakefield’s age and recent results make one wonder about his role on the 2011 Red Sox, writes Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe.  The club already has five starters and the 44-year-old isn't really geared to come out of the bullpen.  Wakefield is guaranteed $1.5MM this season.
