Boxberger was released by the Reds on Friday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports. Boxberger inked a minor-league deal with the Reds on Aug. 6, though his time with Triple-A Louisville didn't last long. He surrendered seven runs on 10 hits and five walks while fanning eight over 5.1 innings.
Boxberger agreed to a minor-league contract with Cincinnati on Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports. Boxberger was let go by the Nationals on Sunday, but the right-hander's time on the open market didn't last long. He'll likely join Cincinnati's Triple-A affiliate, the Bats, as bullpen depth. Boxberger has struggled to a 5.40 ERA and 1.58 WHIP with a 27:17 K:BB over 26.2 innings this season in the big leagues.
The Nationals released Boxberger from his minor-league contract Sunday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Boxberger was with the organization for just over three weeks and apparently wasn't viewed as a solution for the leaky bullpen at the big-league level. He at least pitched well at Double-A Harrisburg during his time with Washington, giving up one earned run on six hits and three walks over 8.2 innings while striking out 11. The 31-year-old should be able to land another minor-league deal in the near future or find work overseas, should he elect to pursue opportunities abroad.
Boxberger agreed to a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Boxberger saved 32 games for the Diamondbacks just last season, but his 2019 campaign has gone very poorly. He struggled to a 5.40 ERA in 26.2 innings with the Royals before being released in early July. The veteran will head to Double-A Harrisburg, the Nationals' geographically closest high-minors affiliate, in hopes of proving himself worthy of a return to the big leagues.
Boxberger was placed on unconditional release waivers by the Royals on Monday. Boxberger was designated for assignment last week and can still be claimed by the rest of the league, but it's no major surprise to see him parting ways with the Royals. The 31-year-old had a 5.40 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 27:17 K:BB over 26.2 innings after signing a one-year, $2.2 million deal in February.
