Sources: New York Mets, Tommy Pham agree to 1-year, $6M deal

Outfielder Tommy Pham and the New York Mets agreed on a one-year, $6 million contract Wednesday, sources told ESPN, continuing the team’s offseason bonanza and pushing the Mets’ record payroll past the $450 million mark.

Pham, 34, could serve as a right-handed complement to Daniel Vogelbach as designated hitter for the Mets. He also played 134 games in the outfield last year for Cincinnati and Boston, hitting .236/.312/.374 with 17 home runs and 63 RBIs.

Tommy Pham continues hot start to Boston Red Sox career with dramatic walk-off: ‘We don’t get paid for overtime,’ he says

As Tommy Pham stepped to the plate in the 10th inning against reliever Lou Trivino, his mindset was simple. He had enjoyed his first taste of the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry but wanted the game to be over.

So Pham, who was 0-for-4 with three strikeouts before the 10th, laced a hard grounder down the third-base line, plating automatic runner Christian Arroyo and giving the Red Sox a 3-2 walk-off win over their first-place rivals. Mission accomplished.

“End it. We don’t get paid for overtime,” Pham told NESN’s Jahmai Webster when asked about his mindset in the 10th. “End it.”

Pham’s third career walk-off hit capped off a dramatic victory for the Red Sox, who trailed all game until Yankees closer Clay Holmes walked two batters to lead off the ninth and J.D. Martinez tied the game with an RBI single up the middle. In the 10th, Arroyo advanced to third when Jaylin Davis tapped out to Trivino then failed to score when Reese McGuire bunted on his own for a hit. With one out, Pham got a 2-0 sinker and shot it 101.7 mph by the third base bag to clinch the win.

Boston Red Sox finalizing trade for Tommy Pham of Cincinnati Reds, sources say

The Boston Red Sox are finalizing a deal to acquire outfielder Tommy Pham from the Cincinnati Reds, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Monday

It wasn’t immediately known the full extent of the trade package.

News of Pham’s addition came shortly after Boston agreed to send longtime catcher Christian Vazquez to the Houston Astros.

Whether the Red Sox would be a buyer or seller before Tuesday’s trade deadline had been one of the biggest question marks in baseball. Boston has struggled since the All-Star break, dropping to 51-52 and into last place in the AL East. However, it’s just 3.5 games behind the final AL wild card spot entering Monday night’s play.
