The Boston Red Sox have completed the signing of Grady Sizemore, reports ESPN

The 31-year-old has signed a one-year deal with the Red Sox and will earn a base salary of $750,000. However, Sizemore could earn as much as $6 million in bonuses for his new team. 

Now, at the Red Sox, Sizemore will be desperate to have a successful 2014 after a disappointing past couple of years. 

Since 2009, the outfielder has played in just 104 games having sat out on the 2012 season with knee and back problems. 

The 2013 season wasn't much better for Sizemore either after he missed the whole campaign because of microfracture knee surgery. 

And the star has admitted that the past few years have been frustrating, however Sizemore has insisted that he's looking forward to the next chapter in his career. 

When speaking to reporters, the outfielder said: "It's been frustrating. No one likes dealing with injuries, and I've had my fair share.

"Hopefully that's behind me now and I'm just focused on moving on and starting the second half of my career."

He will now be hoping to take to the field this season and have a successful spell with the Red Sox.
