Source: Red Sox sign reliever Edward Mujica

BOSTON – A person familiar with the deal told the Associated Press that the Boston Red Sox agreed with reliever Edward Mujica on a two-year deal.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity yesterday because the deal was pending a physical and had not been announced. The 29-year-old Mujica gives the Red Sox some protection if soon-to-be 39-year-old closer Koji Uehara cannot repeat his 2013 performance next season.

Mujica was 2-1 with 37 saves and a 2.78 ERA for the National League champion St. Louis Cardinals last season. He made two appearances in the playoffs, giving up one run in two innings. He did not appear in the World Series against the Red Sox.

In an eight-year career, the right-handed Venezuelan has a 19-19 record with 41 saves and a 3.75 ERA.
