    Red Sox re-sign Mitch Moreland to 2-year deal

    BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox re-signed first baseman Mitch Moreland to a two-year contract, the team announced Monday.

    Terms were not disclosed, but the deal is worth $13 million -- $6.5 million in both 2018 and 2019 -- plus as much as $1 million in incentives based on plate appearances, according to a major league source.

    Moreland, 32, batted .246 with 27 doubles, 22 home runs, 79 RBIs and a .769 on-base plus slugging percentage in a career-high 482 at-bats last season. He started strong, with 12 doubles in the first month of the season, but faded through the middle of the season while playing through a broken toe.
