Red Sox sign Adrian Beltre

The Red Sox and Adrian Beltre have come to terms on a one year deal worth 9 million dollars with a 5 million dollar option for 2011. 

Beltre may find Fenway Park more suitable for his style at the plate, at least that is what the Red Sox are hoping. Beltre, a .270 career hitter, is a .179 hitter in 56 career at-bats in Fenway Park.

The addition of Beltre all but guarantees a Mike Lowell trade will happen once Lowell recovers from thumb surgery, presumably to the Rangers for prospect Max Ramirez.
