November 26, 2014. After a dominating season and performance, winning the PCL Batting Title, and finishing No. 1 in OPS and No. 1 in Slugging Percentage in the PCL with 25 home runs, Brennan Boesch showed all teams he suffered no ill effects from the injury that sidelined him in 2013. With regular at-bats, Brennan led or finished near the top in almost every offensive category, including homeruns and RBI’s. In a brief call-up stint with the Angels, Brennan also launched two of the longest homeruns of the season for the powerful Angels.
With the Reds, Boesch said he looks forward to a great opportunity to earn regular at-bats, and to play for Reds Manager Bryan Price. Like Brennan, Price earned All-Pac 10 and Team MVP honors as a Golden Bear for the University of California at Berkeley, Brennan as a centerfielder and Price as a pitcher. “The Reds have a great history,” Boesch said. “Serious fans everywhere know about the Big Red Machine. The Reds today are just a step or two away from competing at the same level as the Big Red Machine, and I mean competing for a World Series championship. I’m going to work as hard as anyone can to help the team take those steps to get there.”
