Red Sox sign former All-Star Bryan LaHair

Bryan LaHair, best known for making the All-Star team in 2012 for the Cubs as a 29-year-old career minor leaguer, has signed a minor-league deal with the Red Sox.

LaHair struggled mightily in the second half of 2012 and then never played in the majors again, spending 2013 in Japan and last season at Double-A for the Indians.

And he really struggled last year, hitting just .223 with five homers and a .627 OPS in 111 games. LaHair looks destined to go down as one of the least successful All-Stars of all time and he figures to be little more than Triple-A depth for Pawtucket.
