Red Sox signed OF/DH Jonny Gomes to a two-year, $10 million contract.

It's probably more than most were expecting him to get, but there's no doubt that Gomes can be a weapon if used correctly. The 32-year-old has put up an impressive .894 OPS in his career versus left-handed pitching and belted 18 homers in 2012 for the A's. It will often be an adventure with him in left field defensively, but his bat is well suited for the Green Monster. The Sox seem likely to get a left-handed bat to pair with him.
