According to Foxsports.com's Ken Rosenthal, who cited an unnamed major league source, the Red Sox and free-agent righthanded starting pitcher Brad Penny are close to agreeing on a one-year deal.

The two sides are still working out language of the contract, Ronsethal reported, and Penny would still have to take a physical.

The 29-year-old Penny is coming off an injury-plagued season for the Dodgers, during which he made just 17 starts and posted a 6.27 ERA. He was shut down in September with a sore throwing shoulder. In 2007, Penny went 16-4 with a 3.03 ERA for the Dodgers. Over his nine-year career, Penny is 94-75 with a 4.06 ERA.
