FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Although Bryce Brentz, who is ranked the Red Sox's No. 7 prospect by MLB.com, didn't get a formal invitation to Major League Spring Training after a hand-gun accident left him with a wounded leg, the outfielder still could see action in a big league uniform before the Grapefruit League season ends.
"We fully expect at some point in camp he'd be over in games here," said manager John Farrell. "We don't have the exact date, but we're hopeful that he would be back at full baseball activity and get into games on our side."
Brentz injured himself by accidentally shooting himself in the leg while he was cleaning his handgun. He has started baseball activities in recent days, according to Farrell.
