The Boston Red Sox were busy on Sunday as they signed free agents Brad Penny and Josh Bard. Penny played for the Los Angeles Dodgers last year and went 6-9 with a 6.27 ERA in 17 starts and two relief appearance. Bard played for the San Diego Padres in 2008 and hit .202 in 57 games.
Penny will be signing a one year deal that is being rumored to be worth $5 million. He will probably be a back of the rotation guy and a pitcher that the team will have to be careful with due to past injuries.
The Bard agreement is a nonguaranteed major-league deal worth $1.6MM.
