Makes full-time move to pitcher

Gettys has working out exclusively as a pitcher during the Red Sox's minor-league camp, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Gettys was an outfield prospect of some repute when he was selected by the Padres with the 51st overall pick in the 2014 first-year player draft, but his outlook has dimmed considerably since he reached the Double-A level for the first time in 2018. He began dabbling between hitting and pitching for the first time during the 2021 season, and after he slashed a lowly .201/.271/.349 (65 wRC+) in 166 plate appearances for Triple-A Worcester, Gettys will turn his focus entirely to the mound. Given his limited experience as a pitcher, expect Gettys to start the season with one of Boston's lower-level affiliates.
