The Red Sox signed John Maine to a minor league deal

1 Comment

The last we heard about John Maine was last summer when it was reported that he might retire. And he hasn’t pitched in the bigs since 2010. But Soxprospects.com reports that he’s signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox.

Don’t expect much here. Maine had an ERA north of 7 in Colorado Springs last year and then had more issues with his shoulder. Issues that date back to 2010.

Good luck and all, but the odds of Maine seeing any major league time are exceedingly slim.

UPDATE: Alex Speier of WEEI.com hears that the deal does not include a spring training invite.
