Triple-A reliever Mitchell Boggs has been released by the Chicago White Sox reporter Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago, Tuesday.

In the article by Hayes at CSN Chicago it says of Boggs:

"“He was 2-3 with a 9.50 ERA in 36 innings, allowing 64 hits and walking 17 while striking out 18 … Boggs struggled with an 8.10 ERA in 2013.” Feb 22, 2014; Glendale, AZ, USA; Chicago White Sox relief pitcher Mitchell Boggs (43) poses for a photo during photo day at Camelback Ranch.

It looks like leanly the White Sox are making some changes to the pitching within the organization at the Triple-A and MLB levels. Last week Scott Downs was designated for assignment from the MLB roster.

It isn’t good to see someone lose their spot within an organization, but the White Sox must get their pitching at various level fixed and upgraded to the MLB roster can start having better success when they go to their bullpen and even starting rotation to a degree.

Boggs last pitched in the Majors in ’13 for the St. Louis Cardinals and the Colorado Rockies in 27 games combined where he 21 earned runs in 23.1 innings.
