Sox sign Casey
ESPN.com is reporting the Red Sox have signed first baseman Sean Casey to a one-year deal worth $700,000.
An 11-year major-league veteran, Casey will serve as a backup for Kevin Youkilis. Casey is a career .301 hitter and played for the Detroit Tigers last season. He's outgoing and his personality will add to the chemistry in the Red Sox clubhouse.
The Red Sox have been looking for a player to backup up Youkilis. Last season the team had outfielder Brandon Moss working at first base, but with Casey now in the mix it appears Moss will remain in Pawtucket.
