White Sox released RHP Mitchell Boggs.

Chicago tried to buy low on his arm talent with a one-year, $1.1 million big league contract last month, but they'll swallow their losses early. You may recall that Boggs replaced Jason Motte (Tommy John surgery) as the Cardinals' closer last season, but he was quickly displaced and ended up getting lit up for a 8.10 ERA over 23 1/3 innings between St. Louis and Colorado. He'll have to settle for a minor league deal this time around.

White Sox signed RHP Mitchell Boggs to a one-year contract.

The financials aren't available, but Boggs managed to land a major league deal. The soon-to-be 30-year-old reliever posted an 8.10 ERA and 16/20 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings at the big league level last season but held a 3.08 mark over the previous three campaigns. The White Sox are obviously hoping Boggs can return to his 2010-12 form.

Mike Puma of the New York Post hears that the Mets are still "somewhat" interested in free agent reliever Mitchell Boggs.

Puma hears that "nothing is on the front burner" for the Mets' bullpen, so a deal might not come together. Boggs was non-tendered by the Rockies in December after posting an 8.10 ERA in 23 1/3 innings of work at the major league league in 2013. The 29-year-old has enjoyed some success in the past, so he could be worth the gamble.

According to ESPN's Jayson Stark, the Phillies, Indians, Mariners and Cubs are among the teams expressing interest in free agent right-hander Mitchell Boggs.

And the Mets are also known to like Boggs, who was non-tendered by the Rockies at the beginning of December after posting an 8.10 ERA in 23 1/3 innings this past season between St. Louis and Colorado. The 29-year-old was one of the top setup men in baseball in 2012.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets are interested in Mitchell Boggs.

The Mets are looking for relievers with late-game experience, as they want some protection in case Bobby Parnell (neck) isn't healthy. Boggs is coming off a lackluster season in 2013, posting an 8.10 ERA in 23 1/3 innings, but he'd be a nice buy-low candidate given his previous success with the Cardinals.

Rockies non-tendered RHP Mitchell Boggs.

The Rockies tried to trade the reliever but were unable to find a taker. Boggs was slated to earn more than $1.5 million in arbitration, which was too much in the Rockies' eyes after his disappointing 2013. He pitched well from 2010-12, though, so someone will give the former setup man a shot.

Mitchell Boggs might be non-tendered on Monday.

That's the word from Denver Post beat reporter Troy Renck, who says the Rockies "were still debating the decision this past weekend." Boggs was once a highly-reliable setup man for the Cardinals but he hasn't been the same since they tried him at closer to open the 2013 season. He had an 8.10 ERA in 23 1/3 total frames this year.
