Club designates right-handed pitcher Brandon Brennan for assignment
BOSTON, MA – The Boston Red Sox today selected right-handed pitcher Ryan Weber to the active major league roster from Triple-A Worcester. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Red Sox designated right-handed pitcher Brandon Brennan for assignment.
Chief Baseball Officer Chaim Bloom made the announcement.
Weber, 30, is 2-2 with a 4.63 ERA (18 ER/35.0 IP) in seven appearances (six starts) for Worcester this season. He last pitched Tuesday at Syracuse and allowed only two runs on two hits in 7.0 innings, striking out five batters and walking two. The right-hander has appeared in 59 major league games (16 starts) with the Atlanta Braves (2015-16), Seattle Mariners (2017), Tampa Bay Rays (2018), and Red Sox (2019-20), making Boston’s Opening Day roster in 2020. In his last 38 major league relief outings, Weber has posted a 2.95 ERA (25 ER/76.1 IP).
Brennan, 29, made his Red Sox debut yesterday against the Toronto Blue Jays and threw 3.0 scoreless innings of relief. He began the season at the Seattle Mariners’ Alternate Training Site and was claimed off waivers by Boston on May 3. He has made eight relief appearances with Worcester this season, allowing two runs on six hits in 8.1 innings (2.16 ERA). In 50 career major league appearances—all in relief with Seattle (2019-20) and Boston (2021)—he has posted a 4.21 ERA (27 ER/57.2 IP) with a .214 opponent batting average, 55 strikeouts, and 31 walks.
