The Boston Red Sox signed infielder Eduardo Núñez to a one-year deal with a player option for 2019.

Núñez, 30, hit .313 with 60 runs scored, 33 doubles, 12 home runs, and 58 RBI over 114 games between San Francisco and Boston last season. He set career highs in batting average, on-base percentage (.341), slugging percentage (.460), doubles, and extra-base hits (45).

To make room for Núñez on the 40-man roster, Boston designated right-handed pitcher Ben Taylor for assignment.
