Red Sox sign veteran lefty to Minors deal

The Red Sox accumulated another lefty reliever on Thursday when they signed veteran Rafael Perez, who had spent his entire Major League career with the Cleveland Indians. It was a Minor League contract and Perez is expected to report to Double-A Portland.

The 31-year-old Perez pitched in 338 games for the Indians from 2006-12, posting a 3.64 ERA.

Craig Breslow and Andrew Miller are Boston’s curent lefties in the bullpen. Franklin Morales would be a third when he comes off the disabled list in the near future.
