Mark Feisand of MLB.com is reporting that Marwin Gonzalez and the Red Sox have agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract on Thursday.
Gonzalez also drew interest from the Blue Jays, but ultimately lands in Boston. He is excepted to be in a utility role for the Red Sox and will compliment Bobby Dalbec. Gonzalez slashed .211/.286/.320 with five home runs, 22 RBI and 15 runs scored across 199 plate appearances for the Twins in 2020. The 31-year-old is mainly an option in deep-league and AL-Only league formats.
Marwin Gonzalez is still drawing interest from the Red Sox, despite Boston recently signing Kike Hernandez, according to beat writer Chris Cotillo.
Gonzalez's defensive versatility and veteran presence at a cheap price would make for a solid in fit in Boston, even with Hernandez's presence. Cotillo added that Gonzalez would be a "LHH 1B compliment to [Bobby] Dalbec," which is another reason Boston remains in on him. He slashed just .211/.286/.320 with five home runs over 175 at-bats for the Twins in 2020 and could be signed at a bargain price coming off a lackluster season.
According to Twins writer Betsy Helfand, Marwin Gonzalez was scratched from Monday's game with a non-COVID related illness.
Gonzalez has five home runs, 11 runs, and 19 RBI with a .213 batting average. He hasn't been fantasy relevant this season.
