So says the Red Sox' PR Twitter account (which is weirdly a protected account, so I can't link directly to the tweet).
Colbrunn is 43, and played 13 years in the bigs for seven teams on nine different stints. Despite his world-traveler status, he had a pretty decent career -- .799 OPS and .289 AVG, albeit during the steroid era. One potential concern? His OBP was just .338. Now, that doesn't necessarily mean he believes in an agressive philosophy -- maybe he just couldn't resist close pitches. But I still hope the Sox return to their patient, grinding ways.
As Peter Abraham points out on Twitter, the Sox have now filled out their coaching staff (except for an assistant hitting coach, which Abraham expects to be Victor Rodriguez) nearly a month earlier than they did last year. Good work, Ben.
