Red Sox To Sign Marwin Gonzalez (www.baseball-reference.com)

The Red Sox have reached an agreement with free-agent utilityman

, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com. It’s a one-year, $3MM pact with upward of $1MM in incentives, Feinsand tweets.

This deal will reunite Gonzalez with Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who was Houston’s bench coach during Gonzalez’s best season in 2017. Gonzalez played with the Astros from 2012-18, and though it took a couple years for his offense to come around, he became a solid producer at the plate for the club during those last years. The switch-hitter amassed 2,265 plate appearances as an Astro from 2014-18 and batted .271/.328/.438 (111 wRC+) with 70 home runs. He also lined up at every position but pitcher and catcher while with the Astros.

More to come.
