Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley Jr. among 9 Red Sox to reach 1-year contracts

BOSTON (AP) — Shortstop Xander Bogaerts and outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. were among nine Boston players who reached deals on one-year contracts Friday with the AL East champion Red Sox.

Pitchers Joe Kelly, Drew Pomeranz, Eduardo Rodriguez and Brandon Workman, infielder Brock Holt and catchers Sandy Leon and Christian Vazquez also settled.

The agreements left two-time All-Star outfielder Mookie Betts as the only Boston player eligible for salary arbitration.

Bogaerts will make $7.05 million, up from $4.5 million last season. The 25-year-old hit .273 with 62 RBIs and 15 steals.

A year after becoming an All-Star, Bogaerts saw his power drop from 21 homers to 10.
