The Red Sox have agreed to terms with left-handed reliever Franklin Morales on a one-year, non-guaranteed contract, thus avoiding salary arbitration, according to the team. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Morales, 25, who was acquired by the Red Sox from the Colorado Rockies last May, appeared in 36 games for the Sox out of the bullpen and held opponents scoreless in 28 of those outings.

Between Boston and Colorado, he set career marks in innings pitched (46.1), strikeouts (42) and holds (10) while compiling a 3.69 ERA (19 ER/46.1 IP).
