Boston Red Sox Sign Starting Pitcher

Getting another chance with the Boston Red Sox.

The Red Sox have signed pitcher Sterling Sharp to a minor-league contract.

Sharp last appeared in the majors during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, where he allowed six-earned runs over four relief appearances.

He was then released by the Washington Nationals in August before signing with the Red Sox just days later.

The twenty-seven-year-old posted an underwhelming 5.45 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, and 90 strikeouts over 100.2 innings of work, split between Double-A and Triple-A. 

He holds a career ERA of 4.13, 1.40 WHIP and 439 strikeouts over 564.1 innings of work in the minors. He's made 106 starts and 13 relief appearances.

Sharp is a former 22nd-round pick of the Washington Nationals in the 2016 MLB Draft.
