Player Profile: Drake Britton

I have one card of Drake Britton, from 2011 Bowman Prospects. 

Playing career: Drake Britton pitched in 25 games for the Red Sox in 2013 and 2014, going 1-1 with a 2.93 ERA. 

Where he is now: Waived by the Red Sox before 2015 Spring Training, he was picked up by the Cubs. In 25 games (10 starts) at AAA Iowa he is 7-8 with a 5.47 ERA.

Interesting facts: Before a spring training start in 2013 he was arrested for drunk driving after going 111 mph in a 45 mph zone.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Drake Br, between Drake Brand New Lyrics and Drake Break Up Songs, both of which refer to a singer. There do not appear to be any other prominent Drake Brittons.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Zach Britton.
