According to a baseball source, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with infielder Marco Scutaro to a two-year deal, pending a physical in Boston on Friday. Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports that the deal will include a mutual option for a third year.
Scutaro was easily the best shortstop available in free agency this offseason, coming off a year in which he set career highs in several categories, including batting average (.282), OBP (.379), slugging (.409), OPS (.789) and homers (12) while playing what was considered well above-average defense at short for the Blue Jays.
