Boston signs Hector Luna


The Red Sox have signed Hector Luna to a minor league deal, according to Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports.

Luna, 31 in February, put up a line of .294/.367/.477 last season for Triple-A New Orleans in 97 games and played in 27 games for the Florida Marlins. He is primarily an infielder, seeing his most extensive time at shortstop, third, and second, but has played every position except pitcher and catcher in his career. He has batted .265 in the majors over parts of six seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, Cleveland Indians, Toronto Blue Jays, and Florida Marlins.

He is expected to provide insurance as a utility man should Jed Lowrie or Marco Scutaro miss playing time.
