Red Sox Sign 2 Pitchers

The Boston Red Sox have signed Silvino Bracho and Darin Gillies to minor league contracts. With that, they also have been invited to Spring Training. 

Out of the pair, Bracho is the only one with MLB experience. He last appeared in the majors during the 2020 season, where he allowed two runs on two hits in one inning pitched. He began his career with the Arizona Diamondbacks and had his best season in 2018. In 31 appearances that campaign, he had a 2-0 record, 3.19 ERA, and 34 strikeouts. If he can find that form again, he could be a decent reliever for the Red Sox. 

Gillies has yet to pitch at the major league level, but who's to say he can't with the Red Sox? He's coming off of a very strong season in the minors, so that's likely why they handed him an invitation to Spring Training. In 40 minor league appearances, he had a 5-0 record, 2.80 ERA, and 52 strikeouts. If he can carry over this momentum to this upcoming season, he very well could be a nice addition to Boston's roster.

Nevertheless, at a minimum, the Red Sox have added to their pitching depth. That's never a bad thing.
