If he fails the Knights in August or the Sox in September, cut ties. But if he can throw his nasty curve for strikes, he can get big strikeouts in big games against almost anyone except the Twins and Orioles.

The Sox are short on veteran relievers, and this would be a no-risk roll of the dice on a reliever with previous postseason success.
Unless there is a history I am not fully aware of (there was something with the Sox and Jenks but it very well could have been just an Ozzie thing) then I agree with this too.
