    The Boston Red Sox have re-signed World Series MVP Steve Pearce for next season.

    The team announced Friday that the first baseman would return on a 1-year deal for 2019. The financial terms of the deal were not announced, but Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reported Pearce would earn $6.25 million.

    After the Red Sox acquired the 35-year-old from the Toronto Blue Jays in June, he hit .279/.394/.507/.901 with seven homers.

    In the postseason, he saw additional time following a hamstring injury to fellow first baseman Mitch Moreland. Pearce did not disappoint, slashing .289/.426/.658/1.083 with four home runs. Three of those homers came during the World Series.
