Had to step away for awhile.  No word on dollars yet?  Looks like 1 year deal has been confirmed.  

No dollars yet.  Bruuuuuuce said the signing won’t be official until tomorrow due to his physical.

LOVE Gio. To this day still my favorite pitching prospect I ever got to watch when he was on the Barons.

Oh and lol KW. I'll always remember you saying you would never deal Gio and then you do it... a second time.

Really solid signing. With Kopech and Dunning and Stievers all potentially in the pipeline ...for the second starter this is a under the radar move that all should support. His numbers last year were good and quite honestly he got over shadowed in Washington because their great rotation. Happy with some progress.

By the way, Gio is actually a Boras client.  Obviously this doesn’t mean as much when signing old vets to cheap one year deals but maybe this helps grease the wheels to a bigger Ryu / Keuchel signing?

If the Sox are the highest bidder on any Boras client it's hard for me to believe he'd instruct them not to take it.

You know I was looking that up to see if he was a Boras guy but I saw he was a CAA client and before that Aces client so never posted it. Which website says he's a Boras guy. BR said CAA and before that it was ACES.

Mistake on current agent listed ACES instead of CAA

Mr. Jenkins you're getting me excited with all that pitching coming up the pipeline. And throw in Cease and Giolito and in 1 or 2 years wow!

Gio is actually covered by CAA not Boras.

To be fair, he presumably liked Jordan Lyles better.

Damn, I guess that’s not surprising.  Spotrac is never up-to-date.

Not sure I'd assume this. The Sox targeted both - I imagine the front office has the final say so who they chose to target first was more indicative of their position than grandals.

Can you blame the guy? Somehow he was coming of a 2.2 WAR season and  5.5+ WAR 2 season outlook and he said he got ONE single MLB offer last off season. That's crazy.

It also makes a lot more sense that his agent wasn’t Boras with the Sox signing him.
