As first reported by Jeff Passan, the Boston Red Sox have signed Nippon Professional Baseball star outfielder Masataka Yoshida.
The move is expected to bolster Boston’s outfield. After a relatively quiet start to Free Agency for Boston, the team is finally making some big time acquisitions.
The 29-year-old Yoshida has been on fire ever since entering the NPB in 2016. With a current career slash line of .326/.419/.538, the 5-foot 8-inch outfielder has not stopped mashing since his rookie year.
With this addition, the Red Sox outfield looks much more formidable. Especially with Yoshida in left, Hernandez in center, and Verdugo in right. The $105.4 million total cost for the five year deal should pay off in droves.
