Red Sox revendique Robert Stock


The Red Sox claimed the right-hander Robert Stock on the Phillies waivers, according to a team press release. Philadelphia designed Stock for an assignment earlier this week.Stock represents the latest new branch of the Boston organization, as the Sox have also added Zack Godley, Dylan Covey, and Stephen Gonsalves in recent days to try and consolidate a pitching staff thinned by injuries, COVID-related absences (i.e. Eduardo Rodriguez) et opt-outs (Collin McHugh). The Red Sox opted for Stock at their minor league training site, though it’s not hard to imagine him receiving a call to the MLB roster at some point as the Sox continue to determine their optimal mix of pens.

The Stock has a 4.11 ERA in 50 1/3 career innings, all as a reliever, and all with the 2018-19 Padres. After posting a 2.50 ERA in 39 2/3 frames in 2018, Stock struggled to achieve a 10.13 ERA in 10 2/3 innings last season as his walk rate and walk rate home runs increased, and he also hit the injured list with a bicep strain in September.

Stock was a second-round pick for the Cardinals in the 2009 draft, although he pitched for a few different organizations (as well as stints in Mexico and independent baseball) before finally reaching the Show in 2018. The player The 30-year-old has a 3.74 ERA, 1.54 K / BB rate, and 8.5 K / 9 in 327 career minor league innings, working as a reliever in 210 of his 217 appearances.
