2009 Offseason: Sox bring back Kotsay
January 9, 2009 10 Comments
The Red Sox have reportedly agreed with Mark Kotsay to a one-year, $1.5M contract to be the backup first baseman and fifth outfielder for the 2009 season. Considering the questions about how much Rocco Baldelli will be able to play, keeping Kotsay’s excellent defense (he can even play a little in centerfield) makes a lot of sense.
Poor Chris Carter. It’s beginning to look like he’ll never get a shot up here.
