Braves released RHP Mitchell Boggs.
The 31-year-old had been toiling at Triple-A Gwinnett where he posted a 6.08 ERA, 2.10 WHIP and 2/10 K/BB ratio over 13 1/3 innings. It's unclear if he'll look to latch on elsewhere or decide to hang up his cleats. Jun 7 - 7:09 PM

Braves signed RHP Mitchell Boggs to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Boggs was cut by the Red Sox in late March after allowing five walks, two hits, and four earned runs in four Grapefruit League innings. He was one of the best setup men in baseball in 2012 with the Cardinals, but the last two-plus years have been really rough.
Apr 20 - 10:46 AM

Red Sox released RHP Mitchell Boggs.

Boggs allowed five walks, two hits, and four earned runs in four innings this spring. He hasn't been an effective major league reliever since the 2012 season.
Mar 26 - 9:20 AM

Red Sox signed RHP Mitchell Boggs to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Boggs posted a dreadful 8.10 ERA in 2013 between the Cardinals and Rockies and didn't appear in the majors at all in 2014, but he was one of the most effective relievers in baseball back in 2012. The Red Sox will hope the 30-year-old right-hander can rediscover his form. He underwent surgery this winter to repair a hernia that had been bothering him for a number of years.
Jan 5 - 3:13 PM

Giants signed RHP Mitchell Boggs to a minor league contract.

Boggs was released by the White Sox on July 1 after posting a 9.50 ERA and 18/17 K/BB ratio in 25 relief appearances at Triple-A Charlotte. He was one of the top setup men in the majors in 2012 with the Cardinals, but that seems like the distant past at this point.

White Sox released RHP Mitchell Boggs.

Boggs gets the boot after posting an ugly 9.50 ERA over 25 relief appearances in Triple-A this year. The move clears a spot for Henry Rodriguez on the Charlotte roster.

White Sox re-signed RHP Mitchell Boggs to a minor league contract.

Boggs was released last week when he failed to make the Opening Day roster, but he's now back on a minor league deal. He should be able to make it back up to the majors at some point this season.

White Sox released RHP Mitchell Boggs.

Chicago tried to buy low on his arm talent with a one-year, $1.1 million big league contract last month, but they'll swallow their losses early. You may recall that Boggs replaced Jason Motte (Tommy John surgery) as the Cardinals' closer last season, but he was quickly displaced and ended up getting lit up for a 8.10 ERA over 23 1/3 innings between St. Louis and Colorado. He'll have to settle for a minor league deal this time around.

White Sox signed RHP Mitchell Boggs to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

Boggs managed to land a major league deal even after posting an 8.10 ERA and 16/20 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings at the big league level last season. The soon-to-be 30-year-old held a 3.08 mark from 2010-12, and the White Sox are obviously hoping Boggs can rediscover that form.

Mike Puma of the New York Post hears that the Mets are still "somewhat" interested in free agent reliever Mitchell Boggs.

Puma hears that "nothing is on the front burner" for the Mets' bullpen, so a deal might not come together. Boggs was non-tendered by the Rockies in December after posting an 8.10 ERA in 23 1/3 innings of work at the major league league in 2013. The 29-year-old has enjoyed some success in the past, so he could be worth the gamble.

According to ESPN's Jayson Stark, the Phillies, Indians, Mariners and Cubs are among the teams expressing interest in free agent right-hander Mitchell Boggs.

And the Mets are also known to like Boggs, who was non-tendered by the Rockies at the beginning of December after posting an 8.10 ERA in 23 1/3 innings this past season between St. Louis and Colorado. The 29-year-old was one of the top setup men in baseball in 2012 but fell apart when the Cards tried him at closer.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets are interested in Mitchell Boggs.

The Mets are looking for relievers with late-game experience, as they want some protection in case Bobby Parnell (neck) isn't healthy. Boggs is coming off a lackluster season in 2013, posting an 8.10 ERA in 23 1/3 innings, but he'd be a nice buy-low candidate given his previous success with the Cardinals.

Rockies non-tendered RHP Mitchell Boggs.

The Rockies tried to trade the reliever but were unable to find a taker. Boggs was slated to earn more than $1.5 million in arbitration, which was too much in the Rockies' eyes after his disappointing 2013. He pitched well from 2010-12, though, so someone will give the former setup man a shot.

Mitchell Boggs might be non-tendered on Monday.

That's the word from Denver Post beat reporter Troy Renck, who says the Rockies "were still debating the decision this past weekend." Boggs was once a highly-reliable setup man for the Cardinals but he hasn't been the same since they tried him at closer to open the 2013 season. He had an 8.10 ERA in 23 1/3 total frames this year.
