Outfielder/first baseman Brad Wilkerson, 31, has agreed to terms with the Red Sox on a minor league deal that could pay him up to $2.5 million if he’s added to the major league roster. If he makes it to the major leagues, he’ll earn a pro-rated amount of the major-league minimum of $400,000. Additionally, he could earn up to $1.1 million more in roster bonuses and $1 million in performance bonuses.

Last year he hit .220/.308/.326 in 309 plate appearances for the Mariners and Blue Jays.
