Well played, Ashley. Well played …

The Red Sox held a really cool ceremony for Jeter before Sunday’s season finale. At one point every member of the team filed out to the shortstop position to shake Jeter’s hand, and that’s when Kelly snapped the selfie.

Kelly went 4-2 with a 4.11 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 10 starts after the Red Sox acquired him from St. Louis.

The Red Sox have re-signed first baseman Mitch Moreland to a two-year contract, the club announced on Monday. According to Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston, the total value of the deal is $13 million and Moreland can earn more through performance incentives.

Moreland, 32, hit .246/.326/.443 with 22 home runs and 79 RBI in 576 plate appearances with the Red Sox in 2017. With Moreland back in the fold, the Red Sox are out of the running for free agent Eric Hosmer.

While Moreland doesn’t have the best bat among first basemen, he plays good defense. His return also means the Red Sox can safely stow Hanley Ramirez back in the DH role.
