Boston Red Sox Release 7-Year Veteran Pitcher

The Boston Red Sox have released veteran right-handed relief pitcher Ryan Brasier.

This decision comes after Brasier's struggles on the mound, as he posted a high 7.29 ERA and 1.57 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 21 innings during the current season.

Despite his previous experience and contributions, Brasier's performance has been inconsistent and he hasn't been able to replicate his success from the past.

After being designated for assignment on May 14, his release from the Red Sox indicates the team's dissatisfaction with his current form.

The move creates an opportunity for Joely Rodriguez, who is set to be activated from the injured list and take Brasier's place in the bullpen.

As Brasier becomes a free agent, it remains to be seen if he will find another opportunity with another team given his recent struggles on the mound.

Over his seven-year career, the 35-year-old has compiled a 4.45 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and averaged 9.0 K/9 across 229 appearances. Photo Credit: Eric Canha-USA TODAY Sports
