Bobby Kielty, who hit the decisive game-winning homerun for the Red Sox in their sweep of the Colorado Rockies in the 2007 World Series, has inked a $800,000 deal with the Red Sox.
Like the Kyle Snyder and Sean Casey deals, this deal is also not guaranteed, giving the Red Sox tremendous flexibility in terms of who to carry on the bench once the season starts.
This should not be looked at as an impetus to a Coco Crisp trade, but it certainly makes it much easier for the Red Sox to pull the trigger, knowing they have an adequate backup.
This should all but put the final nail in the coffin on Brandon Moss’ chances of making the major league roster.
