Boston's Ryan Brasier (toe) to throw Thursday bullpen session

Boston Red Sox reliever Ryan Brasier (toe) is set to throw a bullpen session on Thursday.

What It Means:

Brasier has been bothered by an infection in his right pinkie toe. The next step will be live batting practice, followed by a Grapefruit League debut for the 31-year-old right-hander. He and Matt Barnes are the favorites for ninth-inning duties in Boston.

numberFire's models expect Brasier to convert 18 saves and record a 2.95 ERA with 58 strikeouts over 58 innings in 2019.
