Embree throws perfect inning

Alan Embree, who was signed on Saturday, threw a perfect inning in a minor-league game against Baltimore prospects in Fort Myers today. He threw 11 of his 12 pitches for strikes.

Embree is scheduled to pitch for the Sox on Saturday against the Orioles in Sarasota. It’s uncertain whether the 40-year-old lefty has enough time to get ready for the regular season.
