Red Sox sign veteran knuckleballer Charlie Haeger


According to Kevin Goldstein of Baseball America on Twitter, the Red Sox have signed right-handed knuckleball pitcher Charlie Haeger to a minor league contact.

Haeger, 28, was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 25th round of the 2001 amateur draft. After briefly retiring to pursue professional golf in 2002, Haeger resumed his minor league career in 2004. He made his major league debut with the White Sox in 2006, and spent parts of the next four seasons in the majors with the White Sox, Padres and Dodgers organizations.

In 2011, Haeger was a member of the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers of the Seattle Mariners organization, going 2-2 with a 7.74 ERA in 9 starts before being released by the team on July 15.
