Adrian Gonzalez Will Join Red Sox, Deal Revived

Jon Heyman is reporting that, six hours after the Adrian Gonzalez trade was said to have died, the Red Sox have come to an agreement with the slugging first baseman, completing the deal and bringing him to Boston.

While the sides were unable to come to an agreement on an extension immediately, multiple sources claim that a general understanding was reached on parameters, and that if Gonzalez’ recently-operated on shoulder heals well, then an extension will be signed after spring training.

This has the added benefit of allowing the Red Sox to keep their luxury tax figure low, dodging potentially millions of dollars in penalties.

There is no word yet on the size of the possible deal, but if the Sox are getting to see how his shoulder holds up, expect it to come closer to Gonzalez’ original demands than to the Red Sox’ original offer.
