More On Fukudome

Jim Margalus:

The Sox had an opening for a left-handed fourth-to-fifth outfielder with some major-league cred on the cheap, and in comes Fukudome, who will be making $1 million ($500,000 salary for 2012, $500,000 buyout on a $3.5 million club option for 2013). He’s good enough to start for the duration of a typical DL stint, which is really the biggest concern for a team that will start unproven entities from left to right.

Pretty good summary of the signing in this post by Margalus. He concludes that Fukudome is worth the risk but probably won’t provide all that much value overall.
