Former Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield has joined NESN as an in-studio Red Sox analyst.
His first appearance will be on Saturday night’s pre-game show with Tom Caron and Jim Rice.
“Tim Wakefield has been an integral part of the fabric of the Red Sox and the New England community for the past 17 years,” said Sean McGrail, NESN President and CEO. “We are extremely happy to add Tim to our all-star lineup of studio analysts and believe that he will bring a unique perspective to our coverage with his knowledge of the team and the rest of the league.”
Wakefield won 200 games in the major leagues. He retired after last season.
