Red Sox will have large payroll, Ben Cherington says

The Boston Red Sox expect to have one of baseball’s highest payrolls in 2013, general manager Ben Cherington told radio station WEEI on Thursday.

The team has just $45 million in guaranteed salary committed to next season, but plans to invest in their arbitration-eligible players such as Jacoby Ellsbury and Andrew Bailey, spend on free agents or take on salary through trades.
