This is the Edward Mujica the Boston Red Sox thought they were getting when they signed him to a two-year contract this past offseason.
The veteran reliever has struggled in his first season in Boston, but the right-hander is starting to find himself. That’s led to his best run of the entire season.
Red Sox manager John Farrell showed his trust in Mujica when he turned to him late in Boston’s win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. Mujica did issue a walk, but he was able to get out of the inning and hasn’t allowed an earned run since July 24.
The Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham discussed Mujica’s revival and more on Wednesday’s “Red Sox Gameday Live.” See it in the video above.
