Red Sox Sign RHP Kyle Kendrick To Minor-League Deal

Apparently to provide pitching depth to their minor leagues, the Red Sox signed right-handed starter Kyle Kendrick to a one-year, minor-league deal with an invitation to Major League Spring Training. Reportedly, the deal is worth $1 million and carries multiple opt-outs points. Kendrick has been on a serious down-slide in his career, spending most of 2016 at Anaheim's AAA affiliate and posting only middling numbers (4.72 ERA). This signing is nothing for fans to get excited about—just another "insurance" move.
