Rafael Perez, who was released by the Twins earlier this week, has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Red Sox.

Not so long ago Perez was an underrated left-handed setup man for the Indians, posting a 3.64 ERA in 329 career innings, but he missed nearly all of last season with a shoulder injury that required surgery and the Twins weren’t impressed with how he looked in four appearances at Triple-A.

He’ll head to Pawtucket and try to convince the Red Sox he can be useful in a middle relief role at some point.
