According to Joe McDonald of the Providence Journal, the Red Sox and Manny Declarmen have come to an agreement on a $905,000 contract for 2010.
Delcarmen was one of four Red Sox set to go to arbitration coming into today. A few hours earlier, the team came to terms with All-Star closer Jonathan Papelbon on a $9.35 million contract. Papelbon and Declarmen seemed like perhaps the least likely of the quartet of arbitration eligible players. Jeremy Hermida and Ramon Ramirez remain for Theo Epstein, who has still yet to go to arbitration with any player.
Delcarmen posted a 4.53 ERA in nearly 60 innings last year, reportedly struggling down the stretch with a shoulder injury.
[Update 5:00 PM EST] - Ramon Ramirez has also signed, according to CSNNE's Sean McAdam. Ramirez' contract will be for $1.175 million. Not a bad deal at all, especially when compared to Delcarmen's, in my opinion. Jeremy Hermida remains in limbo.
