Red Sox Claim Sandy Rosario

The Red Sox claimed right-hander Sandy Rosario off of waivers from the Marlins, according to Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald (on Twitter).

Rosario, 27, appeared in four games with the Marlins this past season. He spent most of the year in the minor leagues, where he posted a 1.99 ERA with 8.2 K/9 and 1.4 BB/9 in 31 2/3 innings. Though he started two games, Rosario was mostly used in relief.

WEEI.com's Alex Speier confirmed that Rosario has one minor league option remaining, meaning the Red Sox can send him to Triple-A next season without having to pass him through waivers.

Pretty awful numbers in his limited major league appearances.

Yeah, but 8.31 K/9 and a 1.70 FIP at AAA this year shows potential. If the Sox can hire John Farrell or (my personal preference) Mike Maddux, he could shine under one of them. I like it.

When the Fish give up on a pitcher, it’s not a good sign and trust me.. They need every pitcher with a pulse they could get last year.

Don’t recall seeing any of his games over the last 3 years after checking his numbers, remember hearing his name spoken of is about it.. Maybe a few other Kameraden Fish fans know a bit more.. Robert???

The fish gave up on Andrew Miller. He’s become a valuable bullpen piece for the Sox. Not saying Rosario will end up the same way, but you never know with relievers…

Possibly. Miller the Fish had totally messed up his mechanics and delivery with. I saw 1st hand watching Marlin games and every season he got in a few games at the MLB level? Miller’s mechanics were worse and worse.

Rosario don’t really know much about, except recall hearing his name brought up a few times on the pre game reports last season.
