The reshaping of the Marlins’ bullpen continues, as the organization reached an agreement Thursday with former All-Star reliever Brad Boxberger on a Minor League contract with an invitation to Spring Training.
The 31-year-old right-hander appeared in 29 games with the Royals last year, posting a 5.40 ERA and one save in 26 2/3 innings. He also pitched in the Minor Leagues for the Nationals and Reds.
Miami is hopeful that Boxberger will have a bounce-back season, after experiencing some struggles a year ago. The veteran right-hander has 77 career MLB saves, and he was an All-Star with the Rays in 2015.
