The Red Sox have reached a one-year, $6.5M agreement with free-agent left-hander Martin Perez. The deal includes a $6.25M club option for 2021.
The soon-to-be 29-year-old Perez is slated to join David Price, Chris Sale, Eduardo Rodriguez and Nathan Eovaldi in a lefty-heavy Red Sox rotation. Pérez was 10-7 with a 5.12 ERA for Minnesota last season after spending his first 7 seasons in the big leages with Texas. He is 53-56 with a 4.72 ERA in 157 starts and 16 relief appearances.
