Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Earns save in 10th inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger retired the only batter he faced to earn the save in Wednesday's 4-2 extra-inning win over the Cubs.

Boxberger relieved J.P. Feyereisen with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning. The 32-year-old Boxberger got Ian Happ to fly out on six pitches to secure the Brewers' win. This was Boxberger's first save since the 2019 season when he played for the Royals. He has not allowed a baserunner nor recorded a strikeout in his first 1.1 innings this year. As long as Josh Hader is healthy, Boxberger shouldn't be expected to see many save chances.

Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Moves up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers selected Boxberger's contract from their alternate site Tuesday.

Milwaukee created a spot for him on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster, respectively, by transferring Justin Topa (elbow) to the 60-day injured list and trading Orlando Arcia to Atlanta. Boxberger appeared to have made a strong push for the Brewers' Opening Day roster coming out of spring training, but Milwaukee instead had him bide his time at the alternate site for a few days before a roster spot opened up. Though he has 77 career saves on his resume, Boxberger is expected to work in a middle-relief role for Milwaukee initially.

Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Back with Brew Crew on MiLB deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger re-signed Sunday with the Brewers on a minor-league contract.

Milwaukee released Boxberger earlier in the weekend after he was informed he wouldn't break camp with the big club, but he seemingly has renewed hope of making the Opening Day bullpen after reliever Justin Topa experienced elbow discomfort during his appearance in a "B" game Saturday. With manager Craig Counsell confirming that Topa would begin the season on the injured list, Boxberger would be a logical candidate to join the active roster if the Brewers decide to fill Topa's spot with another reliever.

Brad Boxberger: Released by Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger was released by the Brewers on Friday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The 32-year-old was unable to secure a spot on the big-league roster to open the season, though Milwaukee apparently hopes to re-sign him to a minor-league deal. Boxberger had a 3.00 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 18:8 K:BB over 18 innings for the Marlins last season.

Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Making push for bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger struck out three batters over a perfect inning of relief in Wednesday's spring game.

It's been an up-and-down spring for Boxberger, who has looked sharp in five of his eight appearances but was tagged for eight earned runs in his other three. Despite the rough outings, he remains in the mix for a spot in the Brewers' bullpen.

Brewers' Brad Boxberger: Invited to spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Sunday as a non-roster invitee, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN reports.

Boxberger made 23 relief appearances for the Marlins in 2020, posting a 3.00 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over 18.0 innings. He'll now join his fifth team in as many seasons and will compete for a major-league roster spot with the Brewers during spring training.

Marlins' Brad Boxberger: Records win Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger (1-0) walked one in a scoreless ninth inning and earned the win against the Yankees on Friday.

Boxberger walked Giancarlo Stanton to open the ninth but was able to induce a 6-4-3 double play and another groundout to send the game into extras. The Marlins would end up taking the lead in the top half of the 10th, which put Boxberger in line for his first win of 2020. The 32-year-old has a 3.00 ERA and an 18:8 K:BB across 18 innings and has become a reliable late-inning bullpen option for Miami.

Marlins' Brad Boxberger: Nabs second hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger struck out one in a perfect eighth inning to record his second hold of the season in a win over the Nationals on Friday.

The veteran right-hander has emerged as a reliable bridge to closer Brandon Kintzler. Boxberger has only been scored upon once in nine appearances, posting a 2.35 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB over 7.2 innings, and his fastball velocity has returned -- he topped out at 94.4 mph in Friday's outing. If anything were to remove Kintzler from the saves picture, Boxberger appears to be the likely next man up in the ninth for the Marlins.

Marlins' Brad Boxberger: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger has made the Marlins' 30-man roster, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

He was added to the 40-man roster with this move. Frisaro notes that Boxberger is expected to pitch as a setup man. The 32-year-old righty saved 32 games for the Diamondbacks in 2018. If Brandon Kintzler struggles as the closer, or if manager Don Mattingly goes with a committee, Boxberger could add to his 77 career saves this season.

Marlins' Brad Boxberger: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger is part of the Marlins' 60-man player pool, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.

The veteran reliever was in camp on a minor-league deal, but he was in line to make the club prior to the shutdown, so this comes as no surprise. Brandon Kintzler, Ryne Stanek (back) and Yimi Garcia are better bets to get saves this year, but it wouldn't be that surprising if Boxberger got enough late-inning opportunities to record a couple saves in the condensed season.

March 11, 2020 04:16 PM
Marlins' Brad Boxberger: Likely to make club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger is expected to break camp with the Marlins, Craig Mish of SportsGrid reports.

The veteran is in camp as a non-roster invitee, but he's shown increased velocity and owns a strong 6:0 K:BB in 5.1 innings this spring while allowing just a single hit and a single run. With 77 career saves to his name, he has a shot to earn high-leverage work in Miami this season, though Brandon Kintzler is expected to open the year as the closer.

Marlins' Brad Boxberger: Velocity may be back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger has looked good to begin spring training and is sitting 93-94 mph with his fastball, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

The last time the right-hander had that kind of giddyup on his heater, he was racking up 41 saves for the Rays in 2015. Boxberger has yet to give up a run through 3.1 innings this spring with a 4:0 K:BB, and if he continues to demonstrate he still has some gas left in his tank, the 31-year-old could begin the season in a high-leverage role for the Marlins.

Marlins' Brad Boxberger: Finds work with Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger agreed Thursday with the Marlins on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Boxberger arrives in Miami with two 30-save seasons on his resume, but he's unlikely to factor into the Marlins' closer competition this spring. The 31-year-old may not even be a viable setup option at this stage of his career, as he's coming off a rough 2019 season with Kansas City in which he posted a 5.40 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 27:17 K:BB in 26.2 innings before being waived in July. He went on to land minor-league deals from Washington and Cincinnati later in the summer, but both organizations released him when he was unable to earn a promotion back to the big leagues. Boxberger will get another opportunity in Miami to compete for a bullpen job, though he'll remain well off the fantasy radar unless he somehow finds himself back in a high-leverage role.

Brad Boxberger: Cut loose by Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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, but 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.

Reds' Brad Boxberger: Joins Reds on MiLB deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

August 4, 2019 04:32 PM
Brad Boxberger: Cut loose by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Nationals' Brad Boxberger: Signs minors deal with Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Brad Boxberger: Done with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Royals' Brad Boxberger: Dropped from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Royals designated Boxberger for assignment Wednesday.

Though Boxberger had turned in a palatable 3.77 ERA in 17 appearances since the beginning of May, his 1.40 WHIP and 5.7 BB/9 didn't paint as rosy a picture of his performance. He'll be replaced in the Kansas City bullpen and active roster by lefty Tim Hill, who was recalled from Triple-A Omaha in a corresponding move.

Royals' Brad Boxberger: Earns win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boxberger (1-3) picked up the win Friday against the White Sox after allowing one run on two hits with one strikeout through one inning.

Called upon in the seventh inning to reliever starter Homer Bailey with one on and no outs, Boxberger allowed Bailey's runner to score on a fielder's choice, then lost Kansas City's lead by giving up an RBI double to Yoan Moncada. Luckily, the Royals came back in the eighth to provide Boxberger enough run support for the win. The 31-year-old has served primarily in middle relief for the Royals this season and owns a 5.25 ERA, 1.54 WHIP, and 25:16 K:BB through 25 appearances.
