MLB Rumors: Red Sox Sign Veteran Reliever Trevor Hildenberger To Minor League Deal


It appears Chaim Bloom wants to work from abundance.

The Boston Red Sox on Saturday reportedly have added another reliever, signing Trevor Hildenberger to a minor league deal that comes with a spring training invite.

The 29-year-old has spent the last three seasons bouncing between the Minnesota Twins and their Triple-A affiliate, the Rochester Red Wings. His 2019 season was a bit of a disaster at the big league level, posting a 2-2 record with a 10.47 ERA, allowing 19 earned runs in 16 1/3 innings over 22 appearances.

In total, Hildenberger has appeared in 132 major league games, posting a 5.35 ERA. Easily his best season was his rookie campaign in 2017, when he recorded a 3-3 record and 3.21 ERA over 37 appearances (42 innings).

Judging by his FIP (4.08 in his career), there’s reason to believe he might, to a degree, have been the victim of some bad luck, which could inspire some confidence. Either way, it’s a low-risk deal.

Hildenberger joins Austin Brice, Josh Osich and Chris Mazza as relievers scooped up by Bloom and Co. so far this offseason.
