Red Sox Sign Matt Albers

The Red Sox have signed former Batlimore Orioles right-handed reliever Matt Albers, according to Peter Gammons, appearing on NESN. While there's no word yet on contract details, it's hard to imagine that the Sox would give Albers a major league deal.

Albers, 27, has spent parts of five season in the majors. He was non-tendered by the Baltimore Orioles after 2010, one of his best seasons to date. Albers posted a 4.52 ERA over 75 innings on the back of a 4.24 FIP and 4.46 xFIP.

This isn't much of a signing, more for depth than anything else. The good news is that, unlike last year, it's not these depth and "random chance" opportunities that the Red Sox seem to be pursuing to fix the bullpen. While they've still yet to bring in any relievers, they have offers in with a number of solid bullpen arms.
