Sox Avoid Arb With Okajima

Hideki Okajima agreed to a one-year, $2.75 million contract, avoiding arbitration. It's a $1 million raise over his 2009 base salary. Jeemer will also be eligible for bonuses of $50,000 each for 55, 60, 65, and 70 appearances.

The team also signed 41-year-old LHP Brian Shouse to a minor league deal. Shouse pitched for the Red Sox back in 1998. (Oddly, the first three seasons of Shouse's major league career were 1993, 1998, and 2002.)
