Johnny Manziel’s agent announces his client won’t throw at the combine
No surprise here as all the top rated quarterbacks usually chose not to throw at the combine in part because they prefer to throw in private workouts for teams using receivers they are familiar with. Maziel's agent tweeted Friday evening that Manziel, "will do all of his throwing at his March 27th Pro Day & private workouts. Teams will have all the time & access they want."ANALYST: Michael Pichan
The Red Sox are looking for an opportunity to give Brian Johnson his major league debut.
Johnson has a 2.92 ERA and 8.76 K/9 over 49 1/3 innings here in his first go-around with Triple-A Pawtucket. While the Red Sox would like to give him a taste of the majors, they'd obviously prefer to have a stronger rotation and not need to dip into their farm system as much as they have already. Steven Wright and Eduardo Rodriguez are getting a look right now. Should they fail and the struggles at the back end of the rotation continue, then perhaps we'll see Johnson at some point.
