Red Sox Sign David Ortiz to One Year Deal

by @ 12:15 pm. Filed under 2012 Red Sox

With just hours before their scheduled arbitration hearing, the Red Sox signed slugger David Ortiz to a one year, $14.575 million deal.  That’s right between where the two sides seemed headed as they went to their arbitration hearing but fortunately they were able to get a deal signed before things got nasty.

This isn’t a huge surprise and I expected to see Ortiz back in the mix but I would have hated to see a contentious arbitration hearing.  Ortiz bounced back from a subpar season the year before and he belted 29 home runs and he had an OPS of .953.  I think the team also liked the idea that he accepted arbitration rather then testing the waters of the free agent market this year.
