Red Sox, Kiké Hernández agree to one-year

The Boston Red Sox and center fielder/utility man Kiké Hernández have agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract extension, reports ESPN. 

Hernández, 31, was set to hit free agency after this season, so that will be delayed until after the 2023 season, at least.

Hernández played in 134 games last season, hitting .250/.337/.449 (108 OPS+) with 35 doubles, three triples, 20 homers, 60 RBI, 84 runs and 4.9 WAR. 

He was a key cog in the lineup for a team that got to Game 6 of the ALCS, including hitting either leadoff or second throughout the playoffs. 

A hip injury has limited Hernández this season to just 68 games through Monday.

The Guardians have taken the first two games of this series, so you'd think that they'd have the brooms out for this one. I don't believe that to be the case.
