The Red Sox announced that right-hander Geoff Hartlieb has been claimed off waivers from the Mets. Hartlieb has been assigned to Boston’s Triple-A affiliate in Worcester.
New York designated Hartlieb for assignment earlier this week, after the righty posted a 14.54 ERA over his 4 1/3 innings in a Mets uniform. This marks the second time Hartlieb has changed teams via waiver claim within the last two months, as the Mets acquired him from the Pirates in early July. For the season as a whole, Hartlieb has an 11.00 ERA over nine combined frames with New York and Pittsburgh.
