Mets claimed OF Bryce Brentz off waivers from the Pirates.

Brentz was unable to win a spot on the Pirates' Opening Day roster and had to be exposed to waivers because he was out of options. The Mets will presumably try to sneak him through waivers, as they could really use some outfield depth in the upper levels of their minor league system. Brentz, 29, batted .271/.334/.529 with 31 home runs over 120 games last season at the Triple-A affiliate of the Red Sox.
Mar 26 - 3:49 PM

Pirates placed OF Bryce Brentz on outright waivers.

Brentz was competing for a roster spot on the Pittsburgh bench after being acquired from the Red Sox in February. Assuming he goes unclaimed, he'll begin the year in Triple-A Indianapolis.
Mar 25 - 8:05 AM

Pirates acquired OF Bryce Brentz from the Red Sox for cash considerations.

The move clears a spot for the newly-signed J.D. Martinez on the 40-man roster. Brentz was mentioned as a possible fourth outfielder over the winter, but he became expendable for Boston. The 28-year-old could carve out a role as a right-handed bench bat or platoon option in Pittsburgh.
Feb 20 - 1:49 PM

Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday that Bryce Brentz has the inside track on the club's fourth outfielder job in 2018.

Brentz was added back to Boston's 40-man roster earlier this month after batting .271/.334/.529 with 31 home runs and 85 RBI over 120 games this past season at Triple-A Pawtucket. The 28-year-old right-handed-hitter especially excels against left-handed pitching. He should make for a nice bench piece.

Red Sox purchased the contract of OF Bryce Brentz from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Brentz has earned back a 40-man roster spot after slashing .271/.334/.529 with 31 home runs and 85 RBI over 120 games this season at Triple-A Pawtucket. The 28-year-old outfielder has been in the Red Sox organization since getting drafted 36th overall in 2010 out of Tennessee State University.

Red Sox sent OF Bryce Brentz outright to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Brentz didn't make the Opening Day roster, but he cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. He'll provide outfield depth at Pawtucket.

Bryce Brentz homered off Toronto's J.A. Happ to account for both Boston runs on Friday.

Brentz has three homers this spring, but he's batting just .156 in 45 at-bats. Although he's out of options, it seems awfully unlikely that anyone will claim him on waivers, meaning he's probably Pawtucket-bound one more time.
Fri, Mar 24, 2017 04:48:00 PM

Red Sox optioned OF Bryce Brentz to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Brentz has batted .279/.313/.377 in 64 plate appearances this season at the major league level. Boston called up Roenis Elias in a corresponding roster move.
Thu, Aug 11, 2016 02:33:00 PM

Bryce Brentz had two hits and three RBI against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Nothing Brentz did in Triple-A this year suggested he'd help the Red Sox following his emergency callup a couple of weeks ago, but he has an .855 OPS in 30 at-bats so far. He'll continue to split time with Brock Holt until he cools off.

Red Sox recalled OF Bryce Brentz from Triple-A Pawtucket.

He's taking Chris Young's (hamstring) spot on the roster. Brentz probably won't be up long with Brock Holt (concussion) due back soon.
Fri, Jun 24, 2016 01:46:00 PM

Bryce Brentz wasn't in the lineup Thursday for Triple-A Pawtucket.

The implication is that he's headed to Texas, where the Red Sox will begin a three-game series against the Rangers on Friday. The Red Sox need to replace Chris Young, who was placed on the disabled list Thursday with a strained hamstring. With Brock Holt close to returning from a concussion, Brentz might not be in the majors for long.
Thu, Jun 23, 2016 10:46:00 PM

Red Sox optioned OF Bryce Brentz to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Brentz was once a promising prospect, but he has faded in a big way in recent years while dealing with injuries. The 27-year-old batted just .232/.308/.382 over 59 games at the Triple-A level last season.
Tue, Mar 15, 2016 03:06:00 PM

Bryce Brentz struck out all three times he was up Saturday against the Yankees and is 0-for-7 with six strikeouts this spring.

Brentz looked like a quality prospect a few years ago, but he's dealt with injuries three straight seasons and his performance has suffered, too. Since he has power and a terrific arm in right field, he hasn't been completely written off yet. Still, he's one of the most expendable players on Boston's 40-man roster.

Bryce Brentz went 1-for-3 and drove home a run as the Red Sox fell to the Yankees on Friday in Boston.

Brentz got the Red Sox on the board with an RBI single off Chris Capuano in the second inning but the lead would prove to be short lived. He's hitting .389 (7-for-18) with two doubles and two RBI in his cup of coffee with the big league club.
