08:55 AM ET 02.05 | Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reported that the Red Sox are close to a minor-league deal with lefty reliever Dennys Reyes. The 33-year-old would join a heated battle for the one or two open spots in the bullpen. Reyes nearly signed with the Phillies in December. He had a 3.55 ERA in 59 games for the Cardinals last season.

Teams will always try to stockpile pitchers this time of year to see what they have left. Reyes has averaged something like 50 appearances a year the last few and being a lefty will give him a good shot to make the big club.

He looks like he had a few too many pork chops in Kansas City. Or maybe he ate Joba.
