The Boston Red Sox have signed left-handed pitcher Thomas Pannone to a minor league deal, per the team’s transaction wire. The southpaw hurler has already been assigned to Triple-A Worcester, though he will attend big-league camp.
In Triple-A Salt Lake with the Angels last year, Pannone posted a 7.07 ERA and a 6.25 FIP across 24 outings (21 starts).
The 27-year-old who turns 28 next month does have some major-league experience, as from 2018-2019 Pannone racked up 49 outings (13 starts) with the Blue Jays but pitched an ERA of just 5.43 with the club.
Pannone will be the seventh pitcher that’s a non-roster invitee, joining Tyler Danish, Darin Gillies, Silvino Bracho, Taylor Cole, Michael Feliz and Zack Kelly. He’s the 13th player overall as he’ll also be in company with catcher Roldani Baldwin, infielders Roberto Ramos and Yolmer Sanchez, and outfielders Rob Refsnyder and Christin Stewart.
