Red Sox Sign SP Brad Penny

The Red Sox announced Sunday that they have signed veteran pitcher Brad Penny to a one-year deal with a $5 million base salary with incentives for up to $3 million extra. Penny spent much of last year on the disabled list and was limited to just 17 starts. He finished the season with a 6-7 record and a 6.27 era. However, in 2007 Penny had a great year by finishing 16-4 with a 3.03 era. This will be Penny’s first stint in the American League.

Penny looks to be a good fourth starter behind the trio of Josh Beckett, Dasiuke Matsuzaka, and Jon Lester. 

There will be some more competition then at spring training for the fifth spot in the rotation between Justin Masterson, Tim Wakefield, and Clay Buchholz. In my personal opinion, I see Justin Masterson taking that final spot now that there is no one to catch for Wakefield. Buchholz may not have much a future left in Boston with this signing, but we shall see what happens when spring training comes around.
