how does a team that just lost its closer not take this gamble? Diekmans making more than chapman in '23 😂

other than Chafin I don't see any other consistent BP options left

My thoughts as well. 3.75 is an easy low risk high reward for any team.  Surprised the non-contender royals were the only team

Not only has he trended the wrong way and is coming off a particularly bad season...he also has a domestic violence incident in his background and I wonder if there are teams remembering that given how the response to that behavior has evolved since 2016.

Justus Sheffield has a minor league option remaining and was DFA’d by Seattle. Maybe try to grab him for depth?

A lot of these minor league signings/pickups seem too obvious.. but then we go sign the guy who hasn't touched a ball in two years

On the flip side, didn't the betting odds for the divisions drop last week after the Correa signing and the Sox were still considered the favorite in the Central?  I am on my work computer so cannot link, but I think I'd give Vegas sportsbooks a bit more weight than 6,750 random MLBTR readers.

Sox added Mike Morin on a MiLB deal. He hasn’t pitched at all since 2020. I’ll never get why they bring in such random ass arms each year over someone whose actually has potential.

There was a thread when he signed but it seems like it was deleted after existing for 20 minutes. This was sometime last week I believe.

Ya, that was me. have a connection. Honestly i dont see the downside. from what i gather this was a Katz deal. Katz and morin overlapped with the angels and think he's the reason the sox signed him.  

He's had success early in his career and overall is a guy who's not going to walk guys. he limits hard contact. not going to really strike guys out, but is a decent bullpen arm.  It's really not a bad signing at all - he's been in the majors in every year he was healthy since his rookie season and his xERA is 3.50 range or so for his career. Had TJS during Covid season with Marlins and rehabbed all of 2021. He was caught in the periphery of the Tyler Skaggs death alongside CJ Cron, Harvey, etc. which between that, TJS and being just a serviceable guy seems to have got him blacklisted a bit. Wouldn't be surprised at all to see him up with the team in 2023 and being an option. im biased, but think it's a good signing and obviously very low risk. 

He's not going to be that electric 98mph fastball out of the pen, but he should get you outs and be reliable.
