The Boston Red Sox have re-signed Mitch Moreland to a one-year with a club option for 2021.

The deal is worth $3 million via a $2.5 million salary in 2020 plus a $3 million club option with a $500,000 buyout, according to a league source.

Moreland's deal brings the Red Sox's bottom-line payroll to around $236 million, far exceeding the luxury-tax threshold of $208 million.

John Henry has expressed a desire to cut salary and get under the luxury-tax threshold, but recently told The Boston Globe that was the "goal" and not a "mandate."
