BOSTON (AP) _ The Boston Red Sox have agreed to terms with
outfielder Jonny Gomes on a two-year contract that would reportedly
pay him $10 million.

The Red Sox have not announced the deal. But a baseball
official, speaking on the condition of anonymity because Gomes had
yet to take his physical, said on Monday that the terms were agreed

Gomes is a career .244 hitter who batted .262 with 18 homers and
47 RBIs for the Oakland Athletics last year.

A part-time player for most of his 10-year career, Gomes has
played both right and left field.
