AP Confirms Red Sox Sign Dennys Reyes

Dennys Reyes, Red Sox agree to minor league deal

      BOSTON (AP) – The Boston Red Sox have agreed to a minor league
contract with left-handed reliever Dennys Reyes.
      The deal includes an invitation to big league spring training,
team spokeswoman Pam Ganley said Tuesday.
      Reyes was 3-1 with a 3.55 ERA in 59 appearances last year with
the St. Louis Cardinals, his 10th major league team. The
33-year-old has pitched in at least 50 games in each of the past
five seasons and is 35-35 with a 4.18 ERA in 669 career outings.
      Boston has been trying to improve its bullpen, which had the
AL's third worst ERA last year. The Red Sox have added
right-handers Bobby Jenks, Dan Wheeler and Matt Albers and
re-signed lefty Hideki Okajima.
