Red Sox add to Their Pitching Rotation a few Days Before the Season Begins

According to Chris Cotillo of Mass Live, the Boston Red Sox and starting pitcher Chase Anderson are in agreement on a major league contract. Chase Anderson's free agency didn't last long, as he was just released by the Pirates yesterday. Anderson didn't pitch at all with the Pirates besides in spring training.

A few days ago was the deadline for Chase Anderson and a few other free agents to decide whether or not to exercise the opt-out clauses in their minor league contract. Chase Anderson is one who decided to opt-out of his contract and quickly found a new home in Boston.

This off-season, the Red Sox added some pitching. One being signing SP Lucas Giolito to a two-year deal. That didn't work out very good, the Red Sox found out Giolito will be out the entire year due to an injury. So now, the Red Sox had to look for some more pitching, which is why they made a late free agent signing with Chase Anderson.

Chase Anderson is entering the 11th season of his MLB career. The past couple seasons, Anderson hasn't had the best of luck. His ERA's have been pretty high, like last year he pitched for the Rockies and posted a 5.75 ERA. Throughout Anderson's career, he has shown potential to be a reliable pitcher.

With this move, the Boston Red Sox are getting depth in their starting rotation. Which is exactly what they've been searching for. Chase Anderson is a type of pitcher who can eat innings for the team he's on, and doing that at a decent level. There's still a few pitchers out on the free agent market, so the Red Sox can also add more pitching.
