Adalberto Ibarra Ends Up Signing With Sox -- For Much Less Than Expected

As we've seen from him going to Salem, at last Adalberto Ibarra is signed by the Sox, but not the deal that had been agreed upon earlier.

Earlier it was reported that he was signing for a 5 year major league deal for between 3 and 4.3 million dollars, however, per Alex Speier of WEEI, Ibarra apparently failed his physical due to a minor issue and the Sox were no longer comfortable giving him a major league deal. Now he's in on a minor league deal with a bonus between $700,000 and $800,000.  So might not be time to start stitching those Boston Ibarra jerseys just yet.
