Red Sox Agree To 1-Year Deal With Gold Glove Award Winner Mitch Moreland

Red Sox Agree To 1-Year Deal With Gold Glove Award Winner Mitch Moreland vegassports.odds.com

The Boston Red Sox quickly find their replacement for the departing Travis Shaw in former Texas Rangers first baseman, Mitch Moreland. 

In what I am assuming is the cap to this wild first day for the Red Sox at the winter meetings, the club agrees to a one year, 5-million dollar deal with former Texas Rangers Gold Glove first baseman, Mitch Moreland.

Mitch Moreland is a seven-year veteran who has spent his entire career with the Texas ball club.

Moreland has never really been known for his bat, although he did have his best career year in 2015 hitting .278 with 23 homers. But his talents more so revolve around his fielding. Moreland was the 2016 American League Gold Glove award winner for first baseman.

Moreland will be splitting time with the Red Sox Hanley Ramirez at first base who will also be spending some of the upcoming season in the vacant DH position attempting to fill David Ortiz’s shoes.

Rumors had been swirling all day long in regards to Moreland’s potential landing spot. The Indian’s had also been rumored to be in the Moreland mix.

In 2016, Moreland hit just .233 in 147 games played with 460 at bats. The left handed hitter has displayed some power however over his past two season as he stroked 22 home runs in 2016 and 23 in 2015.

Catch the details of more deals that were made by the Boston Red Sox today as they acquire an ace in Chris Sale, and a set up man in Tyler Thornburg right here at CLNSradio.com.
