rotoRed Sox signed INF/OF Mike McCoy to a minor league contract.
He should be invited to spring training. McCoy has batted only .190/.273/.256 across parts of four seasons as a utility player, but he has some speed and plays all over the diamond. Expect him to
begin the year at Triple-A Pawtucket.
Red Sox signed LHP Tommy Layne to a minor league contract.
He seems likely to receive an invitation to spring training. Layne spent most of 2013 at Triple-A with the Padres, but he put up a 2.84 ERA with 31 strikeouts over 25 1/3 innings the last two seasons at the big league level. He'll likely wind up as depth in the minors.
