The Boston Red Sox have signed left handed pitcher Franklin Morales to a 1-year, $850 thousand deal according to Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe. The deal allows both sides to avoid arbitration.

Morales, a 25 year old Venezuelan reliever, has a career ERA of 4.61 but was able to post a 3.69 ERA throughout 2011, part of which was spent with the Colorado Rockies. He spent four seasons with the Rockies but was traded to the Red Sox in May of 2011.
