6 Comments

Jose Canseco manages the independent league Yuma Scorpions and one of his players is former big leaguer and speedy center fielder Joey Gathright.

So naturally Canseco broke the news via Twitter that Gathright has left the Scorpions to sign a minor-league deal with the Red Sox:

source:  I’m not so sure about the Fenway in October part, but Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe confirms that the Red Sox signed Gathright and will send him to Pawtucket for now. If they want a pinch-runner for the playoffs, Canseco could be right.
