Red Sox reportedly agree to two-year deal with Justin Turner
Turner spent the previous nine seasons with the Dodgers.
The Red Sox are reportedly adding another infielder to help fill the void left by Xander Bogaerts’s departure.
Third baseman Justin Turner has agreed to a two-year deal with Boston worth “just shy of $22 million,” according to ESPN reporters Joon Lee and Jeff Passan.
Turner, 38, has played the last nine seasons of his career with the Dodgers. In that span, he made two All-Star teams, was named the 2017 NLCS MVP, and helped Los Angeles win the 2020 World Series.
Known for being a clubhouse leader during his time with the Dodgers, Turner’s presence may also help the Red Sox use fellow third baseman Rafael Devers in the designated hitter role more often.
