Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Jonny Gomes' two-year deal with the Red Sox is for $10 million.

It's a big bump from his $1 million salary from 2012 and is about twice as much as the A's offered him in September, according to Slusser. Gomes batted .262/.377/.491 with 18 homers this season and boasts a career .894 OPS against left-handed pitching. He's a good fit for the Green Monster at Fenway. Gomes' deal should be finalized soon.
