BOSTON (AP) The Red Sox are hoping to spend their way out of the AL East cellar with two big free agent signings.
The first team in baseball history to go from worst to first and back again has agreed to terms with former Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval. According to a baseball official with knowledge of the deal, Boston also agreed to a deal with Hanley Ramirez, who came up to the major leagues with the Red Sox.
The official confirmed both deals on the condition of anonymity because the players hadn't passed a physical. The Giants said earlier Monday that they were told Sandoval will be leaving for Boston. The Ramirez deal was expected to be finalized Tuesday.
