He is getting up there in age - he just turned 34 in November.
Via MLB Trade Rumors:
The Red Sox have agreed to sign Nick Punto to a two-year deal, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com (Twitter links). The contract guarantees Punto $3MM and offers him the chance to earn an additional $500K in incentives, Heyman reports.
Punto, 34, spent the 2011 season with the Cardinals and played second, short and third. He had just 166 plate appearances, but posted a .278/.388/.421 line for a career-best .809 OPS. The switch-hitter's career batting line sits at .249/.325/.327, so he may not be able to replicate this year's offensive performance in 2012-13.

As a pure depth move, I love it, especially since we just lost Lowrie. What do you guys think?
