Prior to Friday, deals with Hembree, Thornburg, and Wright had already been settled upon.
Mookie Betts, meanwhile, was on the receiving end of far and away the largest one-year contract ahead of the upcoming season for any arbitration eligible player across baseball, let alone one in their second year of eligibility.
In total, the club spent approximately $55.395 million on these 12 contracts for 2019.
The Red Sox’ official Twitter account confirmed the 10 signings made on Friday just moments ago.
