The Boston Red Sox have signed Ryan Sweeney to a one-year, $1.75 million contract and avoid arbitration according to the Associated Press via the Boston Herald. This was the second time Sweeney was eligible for arbitration.

Sweeney was acquired by the Red Sox via trade with the Oakland A's back in December along with Andrew Bailey in exchange for Josh Reddick. Sweeney, 26, enters his 7th season and is a career .283 / .342 / .378 hitter, with 17 stolen bases and 14 home runs over the span. (read: no speed, no power).
