Red Sox sign reliever Mujica

The SportsXchange

The Boston Red Sox announced the signing of right-handed relief pitcher Edward Mujica to a two-year contract Saturday.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but reported that the deal is worth $9.5 million.

Mujica, 29, closed for the St. Louis Cardinals this year before losing the job in September. He made just two appearances in the National League playoffs.

Mujica has struck out 350 batters and walked just 68 in 381 innings over eight seasons with four teams.

Mujica could be in the mix to pitch in the late innings, but the Red Sox are set with closer Koji Uehara and setup men Junichi Tazawa and Craig Breslow.
