The Boston Red Sox have agreed to terms with Hanley Ramirez, the deal is with $88 million for four years with a fifth year option worth $22 million.

Hanley Ramirez hit .283/.369/.448 with 13 home runs last season. Ramirez was considered by some as the best position player available this offseason. He does struggle with injuries and his a below-average defender. Ramirez has said that he’s open to changing positions, which he will probably do with the Red Sox have a great young shortstop in Xander Bogaerts.

If the Red Sox don’t land Pablo Sandoval than I can see Ramirez being their everyday third baseman. If they do land Sandoval, I can see Boston moving Ramirez to left field and trading Yoenis Cespedes for a pitcher. If they decide to keep Cespedes, they could keep Ramirez at short and trade Bogaerts. Bogaerts has a high trade value right now, so that my be the direction they go.

Boston has a lot of options now and will be a favorite to win the American League pennant.
