BoSox stock rotation

 

The Boston Red Sox have agreed to terms with right-hander Ryan Dempster on a two-year contract worth $26.5 million, two people familiar with the negotiations said Thursday. Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington would not comment on Dempster at a news conference to announce the signing of outfielder Shane Victorino. “We’re engaged with a pitcher. That’s all I can say at this point,” Cherington said, without mentioning Dempster by name. But a few hours later the sides completed the framework of a deal Dempster would help a rotation led by Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz, promising young pitchers coming off subpar seasons.
