    At the moment, the Red Sox aren't sure who will play right field, left field or first base. The Rays, Yankees and Orioles were all better than the Red Sox when the season ended. The deal with the Red Sox represents a significant raise for Gomes, who earned $1 million with Oakland this past season.

Gomes' previous 25 home runs have been hit to either left or left-center field, according to ESPN Stats & Information, so his swing could give Boston an added advantage at Fenway Park.
