The Red Sox have signed infielder Eduardo Nunez to a one-year contract, Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports. The deal includes an option for the 2019 season.
Nunez, 30, spent last season with the Giants and Red Sox. Combined, he hit .313/.341/.460 with 12 home runs, 58 RBI, 60 runs scored, and 24 stolen bases in 491 plate appearances.
Second baseman Dustin Pedroia may not be ready to start on Opening Day, so Nunez may get the nod there. He would slide into a utility role afterwards.
A lot of teams do funny promo videos during spring training. The Seattle Mariners have led the league in this category for years now, with their marketing and p.r. folks producing and a lot of game and sometimes hammy players starring in some excellent clips. They’re doing them again this year, if you’re curious.
The Milwaukee Brewers have hopped on the humor train in 2018, and their latest entry in this category of commercials is excellent. It’s their riff on “The Sandlot.”
The biggest difference: Smalls really could kill you in this one. Brett Phillips is a lot more jacked than the kid who played Scotty in the original was.
The Beast, however, is just as terrifying now as he was in 1993.
