Red Sox sign Dana Eveland


Looking to add some left-handed pitching depth, the Red Sox have signed Dana Eveland to a minor-league contract. Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports that he’ll get an invitation to spring training.

Eveland was once a solid starter prospect in the Brewers’ farm system, but never lived up to the hype and has bounced around in recent years as a reliever.

Last season for the Mets he threw 27 innings with a 2.63 ERA and 27/6 K/BB ratio and at age 31 he could slot into a middle relief role for the Red Sox.
