Red Sox's Taylor Cole: Nabs MiLB deal from Boston
Cole agreed Wednesday with the Red Sox on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league spring training, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
The 32-year-old right-hander hasn't pitched in affiliated ball since 2019 while spending the past two seasons recovering from shoulder surgery. Prior to having the shoulder procedure, Cole turned in a 4.97 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 14.1 K-BB% over 88.2 career innings in the majors. He'll get a token chance to audition for a spot in Boston's Opening Day bullpen, but he'll most likely begin the 2022 campaign at Triple-A Worcester.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Christin Stewart: Signs minors deal with Boston
Stewart joined the Red Sox as a non-roster invitee Tuesday.
Stewart has appeared in 157 career major-league games, homering 15 times while slashing .225/.300/.376. The 28-year-old spent this past season with Triple-A Toledo, where he slashed .254/.339/.538 but struck out 29.2 percent of the time.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Michael Feliz: Back with Red Sox
Feliz signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday that includes an invitation to spring training, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Feliz appeared in 21 big-league games during 2021 with the Red Sox, Reds, A's and Pirates, and he finished with a 7.20 ERA across 20 innings. He'll face long odds of making Boston's Opening Day roster in spring training.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's David Hamilton: Traded to Red Sox
Hamilton, Jackie Bradley and Alex Binelas were traded from the Brewers to the Red Sox on Wednesday in exchange for Hunter Renfroe.
Hamilton was an eighth-round pick during the 2019 draft and had his first taste of professional baseball last season. He had a .773 OPS in 68 games at High-A before being promoted to Double-A, where he posted a .727 OPS in 33 contests. The 24-year-old was listed among Milwaukee's top prospects and is unlikely to make his way to the majors in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Alex Binelas: Traded to Boston
Binelas, Jackie Bradley and David Hamilton were traded from the Brewers to the Red Sox on Wednesday in exchange for Hunter Renfroe.
Binelas was selected 86th overall by the Brewers during the 2021 draft, and he was immediately listed among the organization's top prospects. The 21-year-old appeared in 29 games for Low-A Carolina and hit .314/.379/.636 with nine home runs, 11 doubles, 27 RBI and 29 runs.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Jackie Bradley: Sent back to Boston
Bradley and minor-league infielders Alex Binelas and David Hamilton were traded from the Brewers to the Red Sox on Wednesday in exchange for Hunter Renfroe.
Bradley endured a horrible offensive campaign after signing with Milwaukee in March, as he hit .163/.236/.261 with a 30.8 percent strikeout rate in 134 games. He still provides elite defense in center field and figures to open 2021 as the favorite to start in center for Boston, where he spent the first eight years of his major-league career....

Red Sox's Rich Hill: Returning to Boston
Hill agreed to a one-year contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
It will be the veteran left-hander's third stint with the Red Sox after tossing 158.2 innings last season, which marks his highest innings total since 2007. Hill split 2021 between the Mets and Rays and posted a 3.86 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 150:55 K:BB in 32 outings. He should be a solid mid-rotation piece for Boston if he can stay healthy in his age-42 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Kevin Plawecki: Avoids arbitration
Plawecki signed a one-year, $2.25 million contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday, avoiding arbitration, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Plawecki served mainly as a secondary option at catcher behind Christian Vazquez in 2021, and he'll likely take on a similar role to begin the 2022 campaign. Across 64 appearances last year, the 30-year-old hit .287 with three homers, 15 runs and 15 RBI.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's James Paxton: Joins Boston on one-year pact
Paxton (forearm) agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. The deal includes a two-year team option for 2023 and 2024.
Paxton pitched 1.1 innings for Seattle in 2021 before requiring Tommy John surgery in April, but he's been throwing from beyond 60 feet since September and appears to be making good progress in his recovery. The 33-year-old should be ready to pitch for Boston sometime in June or July, and the team is likely to pick up the two-year option if he performs well in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Signs one-year deal
Brasier signed a one-year, $1.4 million contract with Boston on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Brasier missed most of the 2021 season, missing time first with a calf strain and then with a concussion. He returned to post a 1.50 ERA in 12 innings of relief late in the year, dropping his career ERA to 3.39 over parts of five seasons.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Rob Refsnyder: Signs minors deal with Boston
Refsnyder (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Refsnyder has played parts of six seasons in the majors and has yet to show he's anything more than a bench player. His 86 wRC+ last season, the product of a .245/.325/.338 slash line, is unimpressive but nonetheless represents his highest mark since his 16-game debut in 2015.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Michael Wacha: Joins Boston on one-year deal
Wacha agreed to a one-year deal with the Red Sox on Friday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Wacha spent 2021 in Tampa Bay and posted a 5.05 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 121:31 K:BB over 124.2 innings. However, he started in 23 of 29 appearances and fared better as a traditional starter with a 4.53 ERA and .740 OPS against him. He should be a back-end rotation piece for Boston in 2022....
