Jason Lane Signed to Pawtucket Contract

The Sox have signed veteran outfielder Jason Lane to a Triple-A contract. The 32-year-old, who has hit .241 with 61 homers and 189 RBI in 497 major-league games with the Houston Astros (2002-07) and San Diego Padres (2007), was granted free agency by the New York Yankees after batting .236 with 15 homers and 51 RBI in 97 games for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Lane’s best season in the majors was 2005, when he helped Houston capture the National League pennant by hitting 26 homers and driving in 78 runs. He should definitely be under consideration for a September call-up to Fenway.
