Red Sox Announce Non-Roster Invitees
Today, the Red Sox announced 4 minor league free agent signings, and the 20 non-roster invitees to Spring Training. The four minor league free agents are Paul Hoover, Tony Pena Jr. (right), Matt Fox, and Hector Luna. Pena is an interesting story as he was the Royals' starting shortstop in 2007 and 2008, but has switched to relief pitcher. The 20 invitees are pitchers Rich Hill, Andrew Miller, Randy Williams, Jason Bergmann, and Brandon Duckworth, Matt Fox, Tony Pena Jr., Jason Rice, Clevelan Santeliz, Kyle Weiland, and Alex Wilson. The position players include Tim Federowicz, Paul Hoover, Ryan Lavarnway, Brent Dlugach, Hector Luna, Nate Spears, Drew Sutton, Che-Hsuan Lin, and Juan Carlos Linares. I am excited for Spring Training, and 14 of these players will be reporting on February 14th.
