Report: Red Sox agree to multi-year deal with OF Chris Young
Monday November 30th, 2015

The Boston Red Sox have agreed to a two-year, $13 million deal with free-agent outfielder Chris Young pending a physical, reports Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Young was released by the New York Mets in 2014 after hitting just .205. He joined the New York Yankees and boosted his stock with a solid showing in 163 games. He hit .257 and slugged 17 home runs with 52 RBIs across two seasons.

The 10-year veteran primarily served as a platoon outfielder during his time in New York, hitting against lefthanded pitchers. He is a career .262 hitter off lefties, but is just .224 against righthanders.

Young, 32, joins Jackie Bradley Jr., Mookie Betts, Brock Holt and Rusney Castillo in the Boston outfield.
