Ellsbury agrees to deal with Red Sox
Question of the Day
BOSTON (AP) - The Red Sox agreed to terms on Tuesday with outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury on a one-year, non-guaranteed contract, avoiding salary arbitration. It is worth $8.05 million.
Ellsbury, 28, was named the American League Comeback Player of the Year and finished second in AL MVP voting after a breakout season. He hit .321 and set career highs with 46 doubles, 32 home runs, 119 runs, 105 RBIs and 52 walks in 158 games. He led the majors with 364 total bases and 83 extra-base hits.
Selected by the Red Sox in the 2005 first round, Ellsbury has a .301 career average, and made the All-Star team last season.
Infielder Mike Aviles also agreed to a one-year deal. Aviles, 30, was acquired by Boston from Kansas City on July 30, 2011 and hit .317 in 38 games. He played third base, shortstop, second base, right and left field.
