If there’s one thing Red Sox fans can be sure of this season, it’s that Ryan Dempster will be ready to take the ball every fifth day. Dempster, who has been a workhorse in recent years, was officially introduced as the newest member of the Red Sox by general manager Ben Cherington on Wednesday. The right-hander joins the Red Sox on a two-year deal, and should help bolster a rotation that still has some question marks heading into the 2013 campaign. Dempster went 12-8 in 28 starts split between Chicago and Texas last season, and that includes a fantastic first half with the Cubs, during which he went 5-5 with an impressive 2.25 ERA. The 35-year-old will be looking to replicate those numbers in a difficult AL East, and the Red Sox’ front office is confident he can do such. Check out the video above to hear more from Dempster and Cherington.
