Despite posting a 9.82 ERA in 7 1/3 innings and having to undergo surgery on his right elbow last season, the Red Sox are considering bringing reliever Joel Hanrahan back, according to WEEI’s Rob Bradford. The Sox traded for Hanrahan and Brock Holt in December 2012, sending Ivan DeJesus, Mark Melancon, Stolmy Pimentel, and Jerry Sands to the Pirates in return.
Hanrahan, 32, went on the disabled list after an appearance on May 6 against the Twins. He allowed one run in two-thirds of an inning. On May 16th, Hanrahan underwent Tommy John surgery, had his flexor tendon repaired, and had bone chips removed.
Hanrahan earned $7.04 million last season, but may have to settle for a minor league deal going into 2014.
