The Boston Red Sox agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with free agent reliever Matt Strahm, multiple outlets reported Sunday.

The contract is pending the results of a physical for the 30-year-old left-hander, who ended the 2021 season on the injured list with right knee inflammation.

Strahm pitched only 27 1/3 combined innings over the past two seasons with the San Diego Padres.

He owns a 13-24 career record and a 3.81 ERA in 157 appearances (25 starts) with the Kansas City Royals (2016-17) and Padres. Strahm has struck out 273 batters in 260 innings.
