Boston Red Sox Claim Pitcher Off Waivers From Angels

The Boston Red Sox made a swift move to bolster their bullpen depth by acquiring right-handed pitcher Zack Weiss from the Los Angeles Angels.

Weiss, a 31-year-old reliever, was claimed off waivers after being designated for assignment by the Angels.

Although he carries potential, his major-league experience has been limited to just 18.2 innings, resulting in a career 5.79 ERA.

The Red Sox have chosen to assign him to their Triple-A affiliate, the Worcester team, aiming to refine his command and harness his pitching abilities.

Weiss showed promise during his time with the Angels, but his performance was characterized by a mix of strikeouts and walks.

Despite his departure from the Angels' roster, the Red Sox have secured him as an option for the next two seasons, securing his spot on the 40-man roster.
