Blue Jays' Buddy Boshers: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo by the Blue Jays on Monday.

The Blue Jays have cleared a spot on the 40-man roster by designating Boshers for assignment. He posted a 4.05 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with a 26:10 K:BB over 20 innings last season with Toronto.

Blue Jays' Buddy Boshers: Charged with loss in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers (0-3) was charged with the loss against the Rays on Thursday after giving up a home run without recording any outs.

Boshers threw just two pitches, but that's all it took for Austin Meadows to crank a go-ahead home run. The left-hander was then pulled before any further damage was done, but unfortunately it was too late. Boshers owns a 6.08 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 18 appearances this season.

Blue Jays' Buddy Boshers: Gets job done as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers didn't factor into the decision while working as the Blue Jays' opening pitcher in Tuesday's 16-3 loss to the Dodgers. He retired three of the four hitters he faced, walking one and striking out another.

Deployed as a "starter" for the first time all season, Boshers was able to navigate the top of the Dodgers' order without incident before giving way to Sean Reid-Foley. Things quickly fell apart from there, but Boshers' efforts may have earned him another opportunity as an opener if manager Charlie Montoyo elects to go that route again in the final few weeks of the season.

Blue Jays' Buddy Boshers: Contract selected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers' contract was selected by Toronto on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old left has logged 86.1 career big-league innings, posting a 4.59 ERA but a more promising 3.84 FIP. However, none of those appearances have come since 2017. He owns a 2.78 ERA in 32.1 frames for Triple-A Buffalo this season. Ryan Borucki (elbow) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Blue Jays' Buddy Boshers: Reaches minor-league deal with Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Reds' Buddy Boshers: Sent to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Reds' Buddy Boshers: Inks MiLB deal with Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers agreed to a minor-league contract with Cincinnati on Monday, Brandon Warne of 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.

Pirates' Buddy Boshers: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Buddy Boshers: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Buddy Boshers: Heads back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

After being claimed off waivers by Pittsburgh two weeks ago, Boshers spent eight games with the club but failed to make an appearance. Prior to joining the organization, he pitched in 38 games for the Twins in 2018, logging a 4.89 ERA and 1.34 WHIP over 35 innings.

Pirates' Buddy Boshers: Joins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports.

Boshers was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Tuesday and only pitched one inning with Indianapolis before making his way to the majors. The 30-year-old has a 3.18 ERA and 1.24 WHIP at Triple-A this season and a 4.59 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 78:25 K:BB over parts of three major-league seasons with the Twins.

Pirates' Buddy Boshers: Claimed by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Tuesday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Boshers, who was designated for assignment by the Astros, was sent to Triple-A Indianapolis after being scooped up by Pittsburgh. The 30-year-old hasn't pitched in the majors this season, though he owns a solid 3.18 ERA and 55:15 K:BB across 51 innings at Triple-A. He'll serve as organizational bullpen depth.

March 11, 2018 02:24 PM
Astros' Buddy Boshers: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros optioned Boshers to their minor-league camp Sunday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

The 29-year-old has bounced on and off the Twins' 40-man roster the past two years before landing with Houston via a January waiver claim. Boshers was unable to win an Opening Day spot with the Astros, but could be among the first relief callups from Triple-A Fresno this season when Houston requires another lefty bullpen arm.

Astros' Buddy Boshers: Throws scoreless inning Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers struck out one in a scoreless third inning in Friday's exhibition opener against Washington.

Boshers is one of the left-handers battling to impress manager A.J. Hinch. Tony Sipp has held the lefty reliever job the past two seasons, but has not been effective in that role. Hence, guys like Boshers and Reymin Guduan are in the mix.

January 22, 2018 05:04 PM
Astros' Buddy Boshers: Claimed by Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers was claimed off waivers by the Astros on Monday.

Boshers will join the Astros after being designated for assignment by the Twins last week. The southpaw owns a combined 4.56 ERA across 71 innings with Minnesota over the previous two seasons. He'll look to compete for an Opening Day role as the Astros' lefty specialist.

January 15, 2018 06:20 PM
Twins' Buddy Boshers: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers was designated for assignment by the Twins on Monday.

Boshers was dropped from the Twins' 40-man roster in order to clear room for Addison Reed, who was recently signed to a two-year contract. The southpaw split time between Triple-A Rochester and the big club last season, posting a 3.68 ERA in 14.2 innings with the Red Wings while compiling a less-impressive 4.89 ERA in 35 innings with the Twins. He'll take a spin through waivers to determine his next landing spot; he could draw some interest given his prior MLB experience.

Twins' Buddy Boshers: Called up from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

He has been up and down this season, posting a 3.68 ERA in 14.2 innings at Triple-A and a 5.16 ERA in 29.2 innings in the big leagues. He should work mostly in low-leverage spots in September.

August 18, 2017 01:04 PM
Twins' Buddy Boshers: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers was optioned to Triple-A Rochester following Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Indians.

Boshers allowed two runs on two hits while only recording two outs during Game 1, so he'll swap places with Nik Turley for Game 2 as the Twins look to bring in a fresh bullpen arm. Boshers, who now owns a 5.16 ERA through 29.2 big-league innings this season, will likely be back with the Twins when rosters expand in September.

Twins' Buddy Boshers: ERA improvement a mirage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers has struck out 21 with an ERA of 3.86 in 25.2 innings this season.

Compared to 2016, the ERA is down from 4.25, but the peripherals suggest he's been significantly worse this season (4.59 FIP, 2.84 in 2016).

Twins' Buddy Boshers: Buckling down with runners on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boshers has an ERA of 2.77 with a WHIP of 1.31 in 13 innings since being brought to the majors at the end of May.

It's been an impressive month for the left-handed reliever, who is being used as a long reliever in games that starters don't pitch very deep. Now in his third season, the biggest change for Boshers from his first two years has been his ability to strand runners. Overall, he has stranded 82.4 percent of batters who get on base in 2017 compared to the marks of 64.1 and 61.9 he had the prior two campaigns.
