    Clement Time

    Red Sox sign Martinez replacement Matt Clement

    World series champions the Boston Red Sox have snapped up pitcher Matt Clement on a three-year deal to replace Pedro Martinez.

    Martinez left Boston this week to join the New York Mets.

    According to his agent, Clement has agreed terms on a $25.5m switch to the Red Sox after rejecting a similar deal with the Anaheim Angels.

    Other teams to have shown an interest in the 30-year-old were Toronto, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Arizona.

    Clement went 9-13 with a 3.68 ERA in 30 games for the Chicago Cubs last season. He allowed just 155 hits and struck out 190 in 181 innings.

    The player's agent Barry Axelrod told the team's website:
    "There are no issues [remaining].

    "We have a couple of i's to dot and t's to cross, but nothing major, there is pretty much a deal in place.

    "We should finish up the terms [Friday night] or [Saturday] and he'll have to take a physical probably early next week."
