The Boston Red Sox and free-agent outfielder Jonny Gomes agreed to a two-year deal worth $10 million, pending a physical, reports USA Today.

Gomes, who turns 32 on Thursday, batted .262 with 18 home runs, 47 RBIs and an .868 OPS in 333 plate appearances with the Oakland Athletics last season. Gomes earned $1 million last season.

Gomez has played for Tampa Bay Rays, Cincinnati Reds, Washington Nationals in his eight seasons in the majors.

Gomes gives the Red Sox some extra pop from the right hand side of the plate. Gomes' previous 25 home runs have been hit to either left or left-center field, according to ESPN.
