Boshers signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Sunday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports. The 31-year-old lefty previously attended spring training with the Reds before getting released in March. After a brief stopover in the Mexican League, Boshers will return north of the border and report to the Blue Jays' Triple-A affiliate in Buffalo. Boshers posted a 3.32 ERA at the Triple-A level in 2018 as a member of the Astros and Pirates organizations.
Boshers was reassigned to minor-league camp Monday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Boshers posted a 3.68 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 8:2 K:BB in 7.1 innings this spring, but it wasn't enough to earn him a spot on the Reds' Opening Day roster. The southpaw will open the season back at Triple-A, where he spent all of the 2018 campaign.
Boshers agreed to a minor-league contract with Cincinnati on Monday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Boshers spent the 2018 campaign at Triple-A, appearing in 48 games as a reliever. He last surfaced in the major leagues back in 2017 with the Twins, posting a 4.89 ERA with 28 punchouts over 35 innings. Boshers could have a shot at cracking the big-league roster if he performs well during spring training.
The Pirates outrighted Boshers to Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday. Boshers will remain in the Pittsburgh organization after going unclaimed by the other 29 clubs when he was exposed to waivers last week. With none of the Pirates' upper-level minor-league affiliates still playing, Boshers' 2018 campaign is likely over.
Boshers was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Tuesday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports. Boshers was dropped from Pittsburgh's 40-man roster in order to free up a spot for catcher Ryan Lavarnway, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday. The 30-year-old Boshers has spent the entire season in the minors, compiling a solid 3.32 ERA and 62:18 K:BB across 57 innings between Triple-A Fresno and Triple-A Indianapolis. He'll likely report back to Indianapolis should he pass through waivers untouched.
