It's been a pretty quiet offseason for the Boston Red Sox under new chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom, but they have made a concerted effort to add bullpen depth.
That continued on Saturday, as the Red Sox signed right-handed reliever Trevor Hildenberger to a minor league contract with an invite to MLB spring training, per Darren Wolfson of SKOR North.
One quick baseball note before kickoff: happy to hear that former #MNTwins reliever Trevor Hildenberger has a new home. He signed a MiLB deal with invite to big league spring training with the Boston Red Sox.— Darren Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) January 11, 2020
Hildenberger, 29, has gone back and forth between the Minnesota Twins and Triple-A affiliate Rochester Red Wings over the last three years. In 16 1/3 innings pitched with the Twins in 2019, he posted a 10.47 ERA over 22 appearances. In 132 big-league games, Hildenberger has posted a 5.35 ERA.
Boston also recently has acquired relievers Chris Mazza, Josh Osich and Austin Brice.
