BOSTON (AP) Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez spent the last two seasons as NL West rivals. Now they're teammates, signing with the Boston Red Sox as free agents to try to boost Boston out of the AL East cellar.
"It's exciting for me to be with Hanley and David Ortiz," Sandoval said Tuesday after the team finalized a $95 million, five-year contract that will add the former San Francisco Giants third baseman to a potent lineup he called "The Three Amigos."
Boston was expected to announce Ramirez's deal later Tuesday, according to a baseball official with knowledge of that agreement. He spoke on the condition of anonymity because Ramirez hadn't yet passed a physical.
