A 7.62 career ERA in 25 games does not draw much attention and that is what Jess Todd had when the Red Sox picked him up to help fill out the PawSox staff.

Todd, a 29-year-old right-hander, has been doing some spot starting duty and bullpen work for the PawSox. The former Cardinals second round pick has been with several organizations and last pitched at the MLB level in 2010.

Can Todd help? The Red Sox are constantly evolving their pitching as seen by DFA’s and pitchers brought up for a short or longer stay. Todd may get a call if he continues to perform well in his dual role.
