Steve Pearce Returning To Red Sox On One-Year Deal
The Red Sox and World Series MVP Steve Pearce have reached agreement on a one-year deal, the team announced Friday.
The deal is worth $6.25 million, Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reported.
The Red Sox acquired Pearce from the Blue Jays in June in exchange for Santiago Espinal.
He batted .279 with seven home runs and 26 RBIs in 50 games for the Red Sox last season.
The 35-year-old batted .333 with three homers and eight RBIs against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series.
“We’re thrilled to have Steve back with us for another year as we think he’s a great fit for our club,” said Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski. “Obviously, we all saw what kind of impact he can have on the field, especially with the postseason that he had. He also provides good depth and balance from the right side for us.”
