Quack! Report: Red Sox Sign Brandon Duckworth

According to Baseball America’s Matt Eddy via Twitter, the Red Sox have signed former major league starter Brandon Duckworth. Duckworth last pitched in the majors in 2008 with the Royals, and has pitched parts of eight seasons with the Phillies and Astros as well.

Duckworth, 34, sports a career 5.28 ERA and 1.58 WHIP, and while they aren’t great numbers, he will provide the Sox with organizational depth for starting pitching should any major leaguers get injured. Last season, the righty played with the Phillies’ Triple-A team team, Lehigh Valley, and went 5-4 with a 3.32 ERA in 24 appearances (16 starts).

Assuming Duckworth pitches in Triple-A Pawtucket next season, will the “Duck Pond” be making an appearance?
