The Boston Red Sox have agreed to a deal with free-agent outfielder Chris Young, according to a report.
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.
