Jenks Passes Physical, Makes Signing Official
Today, Bobby Jenks passed his physical for the Red Sox, making the 2 year, $12 million signing that was first announced Thursday official. Jenks had his worst year in 2010, going 1-3/4.44/61, as he is a bit like Jonathan Papelbon in the fact that his stats have fallen in the past few years, but he is due for a rebound. Jenks saved 27, out of 31 games in 2010, his lowest total since he broke into the big leagues, his highest being in 2006, with 41. Today, the Red Sox also designated outfielder Brent Dlugach for assignment. I am very happy that the Red Sox made this move to fill out their bullpen, and I think the group of Papelbon, Jenks, Daniel Bard, and Dan Wheeler are going to change the Red Sox' bullpen from one of the worst to one of the best.
