A busy day of signings for Red Sox

Jacoby Ellsbury will be back in Boston for at least one more year.


Jacoby Ellsbury will be back in Boston for at least one more year.

The Red Sox signed eight of their nine arbitration-eligible players to one-year contracts. Here’s the breakdown:

RHP Andrew Bailey: $4.1 million

RHP Alfredo Aceves: $2.65 million

RHP Daniel Bard: $1.8625 million


LHP Franklin Morales: $1.487 million

LHP Andrew Miller: $1.475 million

The only unsigned player is LHP Craig Breslow. He filed for $2.375 million and the Sox filed for $2.325 million. It seems fair to say they’ll be able to find common ground given the Sox have not gone to a hearing with a player since 2002. Their streak seems sure to continue.

Based on the traditionally accurate projections done by MLB Trade Rumors, the Sox were generous with Ellsbury, Bailey, Bard, Hanrahan and Salty. But nothing out of the ordinary.

Salty received a $2 million raise. Hanrahan went up by $2.8 million and Aceves by $1.5 million. The other increases were less than a million.

Ellsbury, Hanrahan, Salty and Breslow will be eligible for free agency after the coming season.
