Red Sox: Yo Adrian

Yahoo Sports' Tim Brown has confirmed tonight that the Boston Red Sox and free agent third baseman Adrian Beltre have agreed on a contract. Buster Olney reported earlier that Beltre's deal is for one year and will be for $10 or $10.5 million annually. There is also thought to be an option for 2011.

The Red Sox had tried to move incumbent third baseman Mike Lowell in a deal earlier this off-season, but it fell through when it was determined Lowell would need thumb surgery. It's possible the deal with the Texas Rangers will be revisited during Lowell's recuperation.
