Red Sox outfielder Bryce Brentz ‘100 percent’ and back in games

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Red Sox outfielder Bryce Brentz reported that he is “100 percent” healthy, more than a month after he suffered an accidental gun shot in the leg while cleaning a firearm. The 24-year-old took part in a Triple-A minor league game on Wednesday, the first day of minor league spring training games, and at one point he flew to the warning track in right field against impressive Twins pitching prospect Alex Meyer.
Brentz hit .290 with a .349 OBP, .465 slugging mark and .814 OPS with 17 homers in 127 games last year in Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket. He was expected to receive a non-roster invitation to Red Sox big league camp, but the injury left him unable to play in the early stages of spring, resulting in the decision not to invite him to big league camp.
