Boston: Boston Red Sox re-signed free agent infielder Eduardo Nunez on Sunday for a reported $4 million. According to multiple media outlets, Nunez received a one-year deal with an option for 2019.
His 2019 contract is worth $4 million or a $2 million buyout. He also could make up to $2 million in incentives tied to plate appearances over both seasons.
Nunez could open the season at first base for Boson as Dustin Pedroia recovers from knee surgery. Nunez, 30, missed the bulk of September with the Red Sox because of a sprained right posterior cruciate ligament.
