Red Sox Sign Ryan Shealy to Minor League Contract

A day after being released by the Rays, Ken Rosenthal reports that Ryan Shealy has signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox.

Shealy, a right-handed hitting first baseman, had a .238/.354/.512 line in Triple-A this year. His major league numbers are not particularly impressive at .271/.335/.429, but it's certainly decent for a bench bat if nothing else.

With the Triple-A first base position already filled by Lars Anderson, and the designated hitter being filled by a rotation of outfielders, playing time will be even harder to find in Pawtucket with Shealy's arrival.
