Red Sox Sign Ryan Shealy

The Red Sox signed Ryan Shealy to a minor league deal, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter). The Rays granted Shealy his release yesterday after he exercised a June 15th opt-out clause in his contract.

Shealy, 30, last played in the majors in 2008, but was hitting well at Triple A this year. He had ten homers to go along with a .238/.354/.512 line. Rosenthal suggests (via Twitter) that Shealy, a right-handed hitting first baseman, could provide the Red Sox with depth in case they trade Mike Lowell. Shealy's career .271/.335/.429 line shows that he can hit major league pitching.
