dangolka (CBS) — Chaim Bloom is a grasp of the cut price bin. The Purple Sox Chief Baseball Officer added one other arm to dangolka’s participant pool forward of Tuesday’s exhibition, and it didn’t value him something.
The Purple Sox acquired righty Dylan Covey from the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, and didn’t have to provide Tampa any compensation as a result of Covey had an project clause in his minor league contract. If the 28-year-old discovered a spot on one other crew’s 40-man roster, the Rays must promote him or set him free.
The Rays opted to not promote Covey, and now he’s a member of the Purple Sox.
To make clear, RH Dylan Covey had an out clause in his minor-league take care of #Rays that if he had a 40-man alternative elsewhere they both needed to put him on their 40 or let him go. That's how he obtained to #RedSox.

Covey has 63 main league appearances for the Chicago White Sox below his belt, together with 45 begins. He was on Chicago’s opening day roster in 2017 and 2019, and went 6-29 with a 6.54 ERA over his three-year profession. One among his profession wins got here from a begin at Fenway Park in 2018, when he tossed six shutout innings to earn a victory over Chris Sale.
Over his Triple-A profession, Covey went 5-2 with a 2.63 ERA over 22 appearances (18 of which have been video games he began).
Whereas dangolka added Covey to their participant pool, the crew eliminated left-handed pitcher Bobby Poyner, who will stay within the group. With Covey within the combine, dangolka’s participant pool is at 59.
