Jonny Gomes has unofficially been a member of the Boston Red Sox for over a week, and on Saturday the club officially announced signing the outfielder to a two-year contract. It was initially reported that Boston had signed Gomes on Nov. 21 to a $10 million contract. Gomes played for the Oakland Athletics last season and hit .262 with 18 home runs and 47 RBIs. He was a crucial cog in the team’s run to an AL West title and led the league with a .409 on-base-percentage on the road. The 32-year-old righty will provide some pop in the Red Sox’ lineup and will see a great deal of at-bats against left-handed pitching. He hit .299 and 11 home runs in 2012 against lefties. The 10-year veteran has been to the postseason with the Reds in 2010 and with the A’s in 2012, and he hopes to make a return with the Red Sox in 2013. Photo via Facebook/Jonny Gomes
