According to FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Red Sox signed former Dodgers closer Takashi Saito to help bolster the bullpen. The deal was completed after Saito completed his physical on Friday.
Saito will make $1.5 and $2.5 million guaranteed this season, and incentives can bring the deal at least an extra $7 million. The Japanese righthander spent the last three years with the Dodgers as their closer before running into elbow problems last season.
He will be 39 by the beginning of the season.
