Adam Duvall and the Red Sox: The Red Sox have agreed to sign outfielder Adam Duvall to a one-year contract, according to SportsGrid’s Craig Mish and MassLive’s Chris Cotillo.

Duvall, 34, will earn $7 million in 2023 and could increase that total to $10 million depending on performance bonuses.

A versatile player, Duvall has featured in all three outfield spots over the past several years. During that time, spent mostly with Atlanta, he helped the Braves win the 2021 World Series (hitting two home runs in the Fall Classic victory over the Astros).

Spanning stints with the Marlins and Braves in 2021 (he was dealt to Atlanta at the trade deadline), Duvall hit a combined 38 home runs with a .228 average and a .772 OPS.

In 2022, Duvall notched 12 home runs and a .213 average in 86 games before a torn wrist tendon ended his season in July.
