Justin Turner agrees to deal with Red Sox

The Red Sox added a gritty run producer to their lineup, agreeing to terms on a contract with free agent Justin Turner, a source told

The club has not confirmed the signing, which is expected to be for two years and worth around $22 million

It was no secret the Red Sox were looking for a right-handed bat after losing Xander Bogaerts (Padres) and J.D. Martinez (Dodgers) in free agency.

The 38-year-old Turner split his time between third base and designated hitter last season.

Given the presence of star slugger Rafael Devers at the hot corner for Boston, Turner will likely get the majority of his at-bats at DH with the Red Sox.

However, Turner also could get some reps at first base, a position where he has made 25 career starts

Rookie Triston Casas, a left-handed hitter, is projected to be Boston’s starting first baseman. Turner could see time at first against some lefties.
