Bergmann joins Boston on minor league deal


The Red Sox today announced that they have signed RHP Jason Bergmann.

The 29-year-old Bergmann had previously spent his entire career with the Montreal/Washington organization. He made his major league debut in 2005 for the Nationals, going 2-0 with a 2.75 ERA in 15 appearances (1 start). Bergmann struggled after that, bouncing between the majors and the minors despite being a major part of the Nationals rotation in 2007-2008 and making 56 relief appearances in 2009. Last season with Triple-A Syracuse, he posted a 2.84 ERA in 43 appearances out of the bullpen, striking out greater than a batter an inning.

Bergmann figures to spend significant time at Triple-A Pawtucket and serve as bullpen depth for Boston this upcoming season.

The team also formally announced the signings of Brandon Duckworth and Drew Sutton as well as the re-signings of Nate Spears and Santo Luis.
