The Red Sox have come to terms on a deal with Ryan Rowland-Smith, tweets ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. No word on the details of the contract. The 30-year-old lefthander will be pitching for his native Australia in the World Baseball Classic.
The Frye McCann Sports client last appeared in a MLB game in 2010 with the Mariners where he posted career-lows of a 6.75 ERA, 4.0 K/9, 2.1 HR/9, and 11.6 H/9 while appearing in 27 games, 20 as a starter. Rowland-Smith spent last season with the Cubs' Triple-A affiliate recording a 3.94 ERA and 7.2 K/9 in 77 2/3 innings covering 30 games including eight starts.
Last month, Crasnick reported Rowland-Smith threw for seven teams in Arizona, but the Red Sox were not one of them.
