According to a major league source, the Red Sox have signed utilityman Hector Luna to a minor-league deal. The 30-year-old appeared in 27 games with the Marlins last season, hitting .138 with two home runs. The most time Luna has spent in the majors came in 2006, when he appeared in a total of 113 games with both St. Louis and Cleveland. He also had brief big-league stints with Toronto in 2007 and ’08.
In the majors, the right-handed-hitting Luna has played every position but pitcher and catcher, spending the most time at second base (103 games), followed by outfield (55), shortstop (54), and third base (46).
FoxSports.com’s Jon Paul Morosi was first to report the signing, via Twitter. For more Red Sox news, see the team page at weei.com/redsox.
