WERE THEY WORTH IT?
Pedro Ciriaco, Red Sox infielder
There was Pedro Ciriaco fever in Boston… for a few days in August anyway.
The 27-year-old infielder from San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic signed a minor league contract with the Red Sox in January after two years with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Ciriaco had a monster spring training for the Red Sox, but started the season in Pawtucket before getting called up to Boston on July 6.
He became known as a Yankee Killer during the season, batting .415/436/.566 in 14 games against the Bronx Bombers.
Ciriaco appeared in 76 games in total for the Red Sox, playing second base, shortstop, all three outfield positions, and later filling in for the injured Will Middlebrooks at third base. Ciriaco showed surprising pop in his bat and finished the season batting .293/.315/.390 with 19 extra-base hits and 19 RBIs.
