Ortiz and Red Sox agree to one-year deal

To avoid the risk of losing David Ortiz in free agency, the Red Sox sign him to a one-year contract worth more than $14 million.

This deal is a decent compromise between Ortiz's submitted asking price ($16.5m) and Boston's submitted offer ($12.65m), and it makes sense that the Red Sox increase his salary after his performance last season.
