Mitchell Boggs signed a minor-league deal with the White Sox in the hopes of rejuvenating his career following a brutal 2013, but he was horrendous at Triple-A and now he’s been released.
Boggs was temporarily the Cardinals’ closer in 2013, but ended up posting an 8.10 ERA in 27 appearances and finished the season with the Rockies. He was even worse than that at Triple-A for the White Sox with a 9.50 ERA and 18/17 K/BB ratio in 36 innings, as opponents knocked him around for a .400 batting average.
Boggs is still only 30 years old and from 2010-2012 he had a 3.08 ERA in 201 innings as a Cardinals setup man, but right now he looks about as lost as someone can look.
