The Red Sox have announced their first big free agent signing is a familiar name - Mitch Moreland.
The deal will keep Moreland with the club through the 2019 season, President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski announced on Monday.
Moreland spent the first seven years of his career with the Texas Rangers, but free-agent eligibility following the 2016 season allowed him to pursue a new path elsewhere.
Moreland has hit at least 20 home runs and 20 doubles in each of the last three seasons.

This unit registered for the Sabeco auction, according to the Ministry of Planning and Investment. An unnamed domestic individual also sought 20,000 shares, it added.
Moreland also proved to be a pretty tough customer.
The 32-year-old played in a career-high 149 games for Boston in 2017, despite suffering a fractured toe on June 13.
Holding down the fort at first for the Red Sox, the 2016 Gold Glove victor tied for second among all players at his position with 10 defensive runs saved, according to FanGraphs.
