Red Sox signed INF/OF Eduardo Nunez to a one-year, $4 million contract with a $4 million player option for 2019.
The buyout for the player option is $2 million, so Nunez is guaranteed at least $6 million and he can also net an additional $2 million in incentives. Nunez batted .313/.341/.460 with 12 homers and 24 steals across 491 plate appearances for the Giants and Red Sox last season. He'll play second base while Dustin Pedroia (knee) recovers and then can shift to a super utility role. Feb 18 - 9:56 AM

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that while the Mets continue to talk to the Pirates about Josh Harrison, a free agent addition is more likely.

In other words, not much has changed here. The Mets have been linked to Harrison for quite some time, but they are reluctant to give up talent from what is already a thin farm system. Brandon Nimmo has been mentioned as a trade possibility, but the Mets are lacking in outfield depth. The Mets are believed to considering a free agent pool consisting of Todd Frazier, Neil Walker, and Eduardo Nunez, but Puma writes that we might not see movement on that front until "the bigger names are off the board."

Hanley Ramirez is not in the Red Sox starting lineup for Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday against the Astros.

Eduardo Nunez will start at DH and bat second despite appearing in just one game over the final three weeks of the regular season because of a knee injury. That tells you how far Hanley has fallen. The 33-year-old made $22.75 million in 2017 and is owed another $22.75 million in 2018.

Rafael Devers is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

He'll sit for the second straight game as Eduardo Nunez draws another start at third base. It's notable, especially with right-hander Marco Estrada on the hill for Toronto.

Xander Bogaerts is not in the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Bogaerts has hit only .201/.276/.299 since being hit on right hand by a pitch back on July 6. It's clearly still bothering him, although he could be back in the lineup Saturday. Eduardo Nunez is at shortstop Friday.

Hanley Ramirez is not in Monday's lineup against the Indians.

He'll take a seat against right-hander Trevor Bauer. Eduardo Nunez will serve as the DH on Monday while Brock Holt plays second base.

Dustin Pedroia (knee) will resume baseball drills this weekend.

Pedroia is eligible to come off the DL on Tuesday and that still appears to be in play. The second baseman's knee is already feeling much better and it doesn't look like he'll require a rehab stint. Eduardo Nunez has been filling in for Pedroia at second base.

The Red Sox are hopeful Dustin Pedroia (knee) will return from the disabled list after the minimum 10 days.

He's aiming to return for next Tuesday's series opener against the Rays. The former AL MVP has showed well when healthy, batting .307 with six homers and 54 RBI over 336 at-bats. Newcomer Eduardo Nunez has been manning Pedroia's post at second base.

Dustin Pedroia (knee) is out of the starting lineup again Monday against the Indians.

Pedroia will miss his third straight start with knee soreness. Eduardo Nunez will fill in at second base once again.

Dustin Pedroia is not in the Red Sox's lineup Saturday against the Royals.

Pedroia was originally in the lineup at second base with Eduardo Nunez at shortstop. He was scratched about an hour later with Xander Bogaerts in at shortstop and Nunez shifting to second base. We're not sure why the lineup change was made, though it could be injury-related. Stay tuned.

Buster Posey left Thursday's game against the Rockies with a sore ankle.

Posey limped back to the clubhouse after drilling a two-run homer in the seventh inning. He never returned and was soon replaced by Nick Hundley behind the dish. Posey had an eventful night, committing two errors while going 3-for-4 at the plate. Eduardo Nunez got hurt in the same inning, leaving with hamstring tightness. Both players are considered day-to-day.

Christian Arroyo is out of the Giants' lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

It's just a routine day off, but with Eduardo Nunez in the starting lineup at third base there's some thought that Arroyo could be looking a longer timeout. The 21-year-old is batting .196/.248/.313 with 30 strikeouts through his first 29 major league games.

Brandon Crawford has been diagnosed with a right groin strain.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said the club is hoping to get an MRI before Crawford goes on bereavement leave Wednesday. This could turn into a 10-day disabled list stint for the 30-year-old shortstop, who injured his groin Tuesday on an eighth-inning single against the Dodgers. He'll be away from the Giants through Friday at least to attend funeral services for his sister-in-law. Eduardo Nunez took over at shortstop on Tuesday night.

Brandon Crawford will be placed on bereavement leave next week.

Crawford will be away from the team while he attends funeral services for his sister-in-law, who passed away last week. At most, he’ll miss three games. Eduardo Nunez will likely handle shortstop in Crawford’s absence.

Updating an earlier report, Brandon Crawford is away from the team due to a family emergency.

Crawford's sister-in-law passed away this week. It's horrible news and our prayers are with Crawford and his family during this difficult time. Eduardo Nunez will fill in at shortstop during Crawford's absence.

Brandon Crawford is not in the Giants' lineup Thursday against the Rockies.

Crawford didn't start Tuesday's game either, though he did make a pinch-hitting appearance later on. Tuesday the Giants sat Crawford against a left-hander (Arizona's Robbie Ray) but that won't be the case Thursday with right-hander Jon Gray throwing for Colorado. Eduardo Nunez will handle shortstop and bat sixth.

Brandon Crawford is out of the Giants' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Diamondbacks.

It's the first day off this season for Crawford. Eduardo Nunez will play shortstop and Aaron Hill will cover third base Tuesday night against Arizona. Denard Span is also on the bench for San Francisco, with Gorkys Hernandez patrolling center field.
