Red Sox spring training: Reliever Alexi Ogando on his health and expectations

Alexi Ogando is healthy again and could be a valuable piece to the Red Sox bullpen.

Ogando could make big difference in 'pen

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- There are a lot of intriguing stories in Red Sox camp this spring, but Alexi Ogando may be the biggest. He is truly the X-factor. The Red Sox are missing a hard-throwing arm in their bullpen, and Ogando could be the guy. But which Ogando are they getting? The one who made the American League All-Star team in 2011 and finished with a 13-8 record and a 3.51 ERA as a starter for the Rangers? Or the one who had elbow issues in 2014, going 2-3 with a career-worst 6.

Lefty Drake Britton claimed by Cubs

The Boston Red Sox announced Wednesday that left-handed pitcher Drake Britton was claimed off waivers by the Chicago Cubs. Britton, 25, was a former top pitching prospect for the Red Sox as a starter before being converted to a reliever, where he was expected to be a better fit at the major league level. In stints with the team each of the last two seasons, Britton enjoyed success out of the bullpen, posting a 2.93 ERA in 27.2 innings combined. Britton was designated for assignment last week following the signing of free agent right-hander Alexi Ogando.

Red Sox Release Lefty Reliever Drake Britton

Drake BrittonThe Red Sox designated reliever Drake Britton for assignment—essentially to make room on the roster for newly-acquired Alexi Ogando. The 25-year old Waco, Texas native had a see-saw career at the lower levels of the Boston organization—although he performed very well in The Show. In 25 total games for the big club, Britton went 1-1 with a 2.93 ERA. It's probably best that the 6'2" 215-pounder latch on with another organization, as he burned a few bridges here. You may recall that he was stopped for going 113 MPH in a 45 MPH zone back in 2013—and charged with DUI. We wish...

Red Sox ink Alexi Ogando to help ’pen

Once upon a time, and not too long ago, Alexi Ogando ranked among the hardest-throwing relievers in baseball.The Red Sox are willing to bet he can throw that hard again.In what might be the final touch to their roster before spring training, the Sox agreed yesterday on a $1.5 million contract with Ogando, an industry source confirmed. Ogando could make an additional $1.5 million in incentives, according to the source, who didn’t want to be identified because the deal was pending the passage of a physical that was completed last night.

Red Sox looking to trade Edward Mujica?

With so many new bullpen arms coming in, the Red Sox might now be looking to open up space by finding a trade partner for Edward Mujica. The Red Sox have been stocking up on bullpen pieces this past week, trading Anthony Ranaudo to Texas for lefty Robbie Ross before adding another former Ranger in Alexi Ogando. Now it looks like they may be looking to open some space in that relief corps, as Ken Rosenthal says they've recently made Edward Mujica available: Source: #Red Sox in recent days have expressed a willingness to move RH reliever Edward Mujica, who will earn $4.75M this season. —...

Red Sox Willing To Part With Reliever Mujica

(Boston Herlad Photo)After making a flurry of recent bullpen moves, the Red Sox appear to be ready to jettison one reliever from 2014. According to FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal, Boston is making Edward Mujica (and his $4.75 million contract) available to teams via trade. Having recently added Alexi Ogando, Robbie Ross, Felipe Paulino, Edwin Escobar and Anthony Varvaro to the 'pen (and also re-signing Craig Breslow), letting Mujica go would not be a huge loss. Ben Cherington has paid a lot of attention to piecing together a versatile relief corps—and it appears the makeover may not be...

Red Sox sign Alexi Ogando to $1.5 million major-league deal

The Red Sox add more pitching depth and a bullpen piece with one transaction. The Red Sox have been searching for a way to add another right-hander to their bullpen while also looking for some major-league starting pitching depth that could keep them from dipping into their prospects too soon in 2015. They appear to have found both of those things with one pitcher, as Ken Rosenthal reports that Boston has agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million major-league deal with former Rangers pitcher Alexi Ogando. There are another $1.5 million in incentives for Ogando as well, so this could end up being...

Red Sox Sign Alexi Ogando To One-Year Deal

In a bold move with tremendous upside, the Red Sox have signed former Texas reliever Alexi Ogando to a one-year contract—pending a physical. FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reported the deal, which further bolsters the Boston bullpen. As we have said before, claiming the 6'4" Dominican is a good risk—given a tremendous track record earlier in his career. In his rookie season, Ogando posted a 1.30 ERA out of the bullpen. He then followed that up by becoming an All-Star starter (13-9, 3.51 ERA in 2011). Despite the injury history, this is a very good, low-risk move.
