The White Sox announced — via Facebook and other outlets — that they have released right-hander Mitchell Boggs, who signed a minor league contract with the Pale Hose in early February and had been competing for a bullpen job this spring in camp.

Boggs was one of the best setup men in baseball in 2012 and opened the 2013 season as the Cardinals’ primary closer, but he blew a bunch of early save opportunities and was traded to the Rockies in July for international signing money. He showed some promise at the end of last season in Colorado, but the struggles returned this spring in the Cactus League.

Boggs allowed nine earned runs on 11 hits in 6 1/3 innings this spring for the White Sox.

The 30-year-old native of Dalton, Georgia will try to latch on with a new team.

    feel bad for the guy. Have to wonder how he could lose it all so quickly.Hope he finds a way back

      I feel bad for him as well. He comes across as a good guy and definitely has some good stuff on the mound, but there is an issue between the ears which has hurt him.

    Come on back home here to Georgia and sign with the Braves , you can never have too much pitching and bullpen depth!

      He would but he doesn’t want to have to undergo Tommy John surgery in May…

      And I’m a Braves fan!

        Yeah I hear that , but something’s up with the medical and training staff & the pitching regime that McDowell is running

        He’s probably already hurt. At least if he signs with ATL they’ll get him the group discount on the surgery.

    What a shame. I always liked him, as a Cardinals fan, and really hoped that he’d bounce back. Hoping he can somewhere.
