Report: Red Sox Re-Sign Mitch Moreland

The question of who will be the Red Sox first baseman come Opening Day has drawn to a conclusion as the team re-signed veteran Mitch Moreland to a one-year, $3 million deal.

The deal also features a club option for the 2021 season worth $3 million, as well as a $500,000 buyout for the 2021 season.

The 34-year-old first baseman played just 91 games last season due to various lower-body injuries but still posted a .347 wOBA and a career-high .507 slugging percentage in 2019.

In an offseason that has been relatively slow for the Red Sox –– outside of the ongoing MLB-issued investigation –– bringing back a fan-favorite in Mitch Moreland is just the move the fan base was looking for.

Moreland joins a first base competition featuring Michael Chavis and Bobby Dalbec but it seems as though the veteran will get every opportunity to keep his spot on the depth chart.
