Sox sign Javier Lopez to one-year deal
The Boston Red Sox today agreed to terms with lefthanded pitcher Javier Lopez on a one-year, non-guaranteed contract for the 2008 season. No further terms were disclosed.
The agreement was announced by Executive Vice President/General Manager Theo Epstein.
Lopez was 2-1 with a 3.10 earned run average in 61 relief appearances with Boston in 2007. The lefthander ranked second on the staff in appearances and holds (13). Lopez also was with Triple-A Pawtucket from April 9-May 11, going 2-1, 3.78 in 17 games.
Acquired from the Chicago White Sox organization in June 2006, Lopez is 9-5, 5.06 in 259 career major league appearances with Colorado, Arizona, and Boston.
With Lopez’ agreement, two unsigned Red Sox remain eligible for salary arbitration, righthanded pitcher Kyle Snyder and infielder Kevin Youkilis.
