1B Loney, Rays agree to $2 million deal
December 3, 2012
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations says first baseman James Loney and the Tampa Bay Rays have agreed to a $2 million, one-year contract.
The agreement is pending a physical, the person said Monday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal has not yet been announced. Loney can make an additional $1 million in performance bonuses.
The 28-year-old, dealt to Boston in July as part of the trade that brought Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett to Los Angeles, hit .249 last season with six homers and 41 RBIs. He had 90 RBIs in each of the 2008 and 2009 seasons but his production has steadily declined.
