Red Sox Free Agency 2011: Jesse Carlson Agrees To Deal With Sox

Jesse Carlson has reportedly agreed to terms on a split contract with the Boston Red Sox, according to a report from Sean McAdam of Comcast SportsNet New England. Carlson pitched for the Toronto Blue Jays in 2011 before being released.

Under a split contract, Carlson receives an invite to spring training. If he makes the major league squad, he will receive a higher salary. However, if he doesn't make the cut, he will be placed in the minors with a lower salary.

Carlson, 30, struggled through last season with a left rotator cuff injury. In 20 games last season, Carlson didn't record a decision and had a 4.61 ERA, eight strikeouts and five walks in 13.2 innings pitched. Carlson has a career 8-8 record with a 3.63 ERA and 114 strikeouts in 162 games, all with the Blue Jays.
