Report: Red Sox, outfielder Jonny Gomes nearing two-year deal

The Boston Red Sox are close to agreeing on a two-year contract with free agent outfielder Jonny Gomes, Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports.

Gomes batted .247 with 18 home runs as a part-time corner outfielder and designated hitter for the Oakland Athletics last season. He slugged 11 homers and posted a .974 OPS against lefties, 17th highest in MLB.

Gomes, who turns 32 on Thursday, boasts a career .874 OPS against lefties over 10 Major League seasons. He previously played for the Rays, Reds and Nationals.

The Red Sox had honed their search for outfield help on Gomes and Cody Ross in recent days, reports CSNNE.com's Sean McAdam. Both are viewed as left fielders, meaning the club could still be in the hunt for a right fielder to play beside center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury.
