Dempster
It sounding more and more likely that Ryan Dempster will pitch for the Red Sox in 2013. FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the free-agent pitcher has agreed to a two-year deal with the Red Sox. That’s reportedly just pending a physical at this point. According to Rosenthal, the deal will be worth $26.5 million.

He spent the first half of the season with the Cubs before he was traded to the Rangers at the trade deadline. The 35-year-old posted a 5-5 record with a 2.25 ERA with the Cubs in 16 starts before making the jump to the AL. He struggled with the Rangers, despite what his 7-3 record may say. Dempster had a 5.09 ERA in those 12 starts, with a 1.435 WHIP. Dempster’s strikeout rate went up after switching leagues, but his walk rate also increased as well.
