Red Sox prospect Bryce Brentz accidentally shot himself 2 weeks ago while cleaning his gun. He was invited to the Big League camp but is not expected to make the team. That expectation is not presumed to be the reason for the accidental shot.

The bullet went into Brentz’s left leg and out the other side, according to Cherington. The 24-year-old Brentz, who was a nonroster invitee to big league camp, was “lucky” not to have suffered a more significant injury, the GM said.
