UPDATE: Details of Embree's deal

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Pitcher Alan Embree signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox on Saturday that calls for him to make a $500,000 salary if he is added to the major league roster. His deal includes an opt-out if he is not added to the major league roster by April 15.

 

"I haven't had a spring training. Let's not be silly about this and go and jump into it," said Embree. "If I am ready [at the start of the season], so be it. If I'm not, we have a little bit of a grace period."

 

Embree had a 5.84 ERA for the Rockies last year. He did not pitch in a big league game after his right tibia was broken by a line drive on July 10, but he rehabbed and was able to pitch in Fall Instructional League.

 

"I felt really strong at the end of the season coming back from the injury," he said. "I felt like I had a lot left in the tank."
