Sox Claim Relief Pitcher Mendez Off Waivers From Texas
If you are a relief pitcher with a pulse, the Red Sox may just claim you. The latest example of this axiom is Roman Mendez—claimed by Boston off waivers from the Texas Rangers. The 25-year old was originally Red Sox property and was traded to the Rangers to getJarrod Saltalamacchia back in 2010. In 42 MLB appearances, Mendez has an 0-2 mark with a 3.02 ERA. It looks like the righty reliever will get a shot at convincing Dave Dombrowski that he deserves a spot in the 2016 Boston bullpen.
