The Boston Red Sox announced Friday that the organization has agreed to one-year deals with 16 players for the 2012 season. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
From the press release:
"Agreeing to terms were pitchers Michael Bowden, Drake Britton, Chris Carpenter, Felix Doubront, Mark Melancon, Clayton Mortensen, Stolmy Pimentel and Junichi Tazawa; catchers Luis Exposito and Ryan Lavarnway; infielders Lars Anderson, Will Middlebrooks and Oscar Tejeda; and outfielders Ryan Kalish, Che-Hsuan Lin and Darnell McDonald."
After the signings, everyone on Boston's 40-man roster is now under contract.
Doubront is still being considered for the fifth spot in Boston's starting rotation. The 23-year old threw two-plus innings Thursday against the St. Louis Cardinals, allowing two runs, three walks and three hits while struggling with his control.
