The Red Sox won a World Series in 2013 by inking numerous "low-risk, high-reward" players. The team signed MLB's "low-risk, high-reward" posterchild Wednesday.
Former three-time All-Star Grady Sizemore, who hasn't played in the majors since 2011, signed with Boston for a one-year, $750,000 deal. There are incentives in the deal that could reach $6 million, according to reports.
The outfielder was once one of the more promising young players in baseball, blasting 33 homers and swiping 38 bases in an MVP-worthy 2008 season, but major back and knee injuries sent his career into a tailspin.
