Red Sox’s Ron Roenicke Reveals Factors Behind Brian Johnson’s Release

The left-hander never cracked the big league roster in the abbreviated 2020 Major League Baseball season despite being an option to help out the depleted staff. Ron Roenicke confirmed the release Monday ahead of Boston’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, stating Johnson was seeking an opportunity and felt he wasn’t getting one here.

“Johnson felt like he wanted an opportunity,” the Sox manager told reporters during his pregame Zoom press conference. Sometimes you need to go other places to get that.” Roenicke also noted that Johnson asked for his release. The pitcher also wasn’t on the 40-man roster and out of options.
