According to John Tomase of the Boston Herald, the Boston Red Sox have signed free-agent southpaw Rich Hill to a minor-league deal that includes an invite to spring training. Hill's contract calls for him to make a prorated $725K in the majors, reports Alex Speier of WEEI.

Hill, 31, started off the 2011 campaign with eight scoreless innings and striking out 12 to only 3 walks, before he tore his ulnar collateral ligament that required Tommy John surgery. The southpaw is hopeful to be ready by Opening Day and make the team as a lefty reliever for the Red Sox major-league club.
