Red Sox lose right-handed pitcher off waivers to the Padres
Boston's 40-man roster now sits at 38 players
The San Diego Padres claimed right-handed pitcher Logan Gillaspie off waivers from the Red Sox on Wednesday, the team announced on X (formerly known as Twitter).
Boston’s 40-man roster now sits at 38 players. The Red Sox recently added minor league pitchers Wikelman Gonzalez and Luis Perales to the 40-man roster, protecting them from the Rule 5 Draft in December. Left-handed pitching prospect Shane Drohan was not selected to the roster in a surprise move by the organization.
The Red Sox initially claimed Gillaspie off waivers from the Orioles at the beginning of September. Boston has a 40-man roster spot open following Jarren Duran’s season ending turf toe surgery.
The right-hander tossed ossed 26 1/3 innings for the first place Orioles over the last two seasons. He posted a 4.10 ERA in 28 career appearances, including a 3.12 ERA in 17 1/3 innings last year.
While in Triple-A this season, splitting time between Norfolk and the WooSox, he’s pitched in 36 1/3 innings and posted a 6.00 ERA.
The Red Sox continue to move on from pitchers that have no clear path to the Major League roster. New front office leader Craig Breslow has said since his introductory press conference the club’s focus was bringing in starting pitching and more pitchers for longterm sustainability.
