Boston Red Sox Place 8-Year Veteran Pitcher On Waivers

The Boston Red Sox recently designated right-handed pitcher Kyle Barraclough for assignment, marking the end of his time with the team.

This move was made to accommodate Zack Kelly's return from the 60-day Injured List, necessitating a change on the 40-man roster.

Barraclough's tenure with the Red Sox was marred by struggles, as he managed only three appearances and allowed 11 runs over 7.2 innings this season.

His strikeout numbers also dipped significantly, striking out just four of the 46 batters he faced in Boston.

Despite these challenges, Kyle Barraclough maintains a track record of success, particularly during his time with the Miami Marlins, where he boasted a career 3.21 ERA.

Additionally, he has demonstrated consistency in Triple-A with a 3.44 ERA over 170 innings.

It's likely that Barraclough will look to secure a minor league deal in the offseason to work on his game and potentially make a comeback in the future, drawing on his past achievements as he seeks to regain his form on the mound.

Over his eight-year career in the majors, the 33-year-old holds a solid 3.86 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, with 350 strikeouts across 282 innings and 291 appearances. Photo Credit: David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports
