Red Sox Re-Sign World Series MVP Steve Pearce To One-Year, $6.25M Deal

Multiple reports indicate that the Red Sox have re-signed World Series MVP Steve Pearce to a one-year, $6.25 million contract. Peace becomes the first free-agent signed this offseason. Among the big un-signed Carmine Hosers are: Craig Kimbrel, Nathan Eovaldi and Joe Kelly. It was unclear whether the Red Sox would be able to match likely multi-year deals that would be offered to Pearce—given his big-stage heroics in October. However, as Pearce told reporters at the Duck Boat parade in Boston, he "would love to come back" and play another year for the team he rooted for as a young boy in Florida. In eleven 2018 post-season games, Pearce hit four home runs—including a huge game-tying blast in Game Four of the World Series. Overall, he hit .333 in The Fall Classic with three long-balls.
