    BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox are close to finalizing a two-year contract with free-agent outfielder Jonny Gomes, pending a physical, according to an industry source.

    Gomes, who turns 32 on Thursday, has eight-plus seasons of big league experience with the Tampa Bay Rays, Cincinnati Reds, Washington Nationals and Oakland Athletics. He spent the 2012 season with the A's and hit .262 with 18 homers and 47 RBIs.


    The amount of the deal is not known, but Gomes likely will receive a raise from the $1 million he earned with Oakland.



    CSN New England earlier had reported the sides were nearing an agreement.


    Gomes' previous 25 home runs have been hit to either left or left-center field, according to ESPN Stats & Information, so his swing could give Boston an added advantage at Fenway Park. In 31 career games at Fenway, however, Gomes has a .262 average with three homers and seven RBIs.


    Even with Gomes in the mix, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington still would like to add another outfielder, and the team remains interested in re-signing Cody Ross. Gomes (.284/.382/.512) and Ross (.284/.353/.575) have similar career numbers versus left-handed pitching.


    Gomes is known as a leader both on and off the field, and he'll likely serve in a platoon role for the Red Sox. He can play both corner positions.
    You're welcome

    Red Sox will put Gomes in left field I'd gather, and I wonder how this acquisition negatively impacts Nick Swisher's market.

    Gomes could put up the type of numbers they got last season from Ross.
    he's probably going to come less than half of what Ross was asking.

    Him and Ethier would have made a great platoon.

    This. Ross is looking for a 3 year deal at close to double the salary that Gomes wants, I like the signing.

    Red Sox sign Jonny Gomes

    Solid signing.
    “It’s about winning,” Stoudemire said. “You win, you’re going to get on national TV. Simple. In Phoenix, we won — Western Conference finals three, four years, playoffs every year. We won. If you don’t win, nobody really wants to see you.”

    I'm told it's two years, $10 million for Gomes, about twice what #Athletics offered in Sept.
