Here’s a little update to a story Aaron covered on Tuesday. The Red Sox have signed veteran left-handed reliever Scott Schoeneweis to a minor league contract, reports NESN.com.

Schoeneweis was released by the Brewers earlier this week and wasn’t too happy about it, saying “I wasted a month of my time” and “It’s just ironic that I can’t get a job because my wife died.”

Similar to the deal the Red Sox gave Alan Embree last week, the contract for Schoeneweis includes an April 15 opt-out clause, according to Rob Bradford of WEEI.com. Both will compete to be the second left-hander behind Hideki Okajima.
