The Boston Red Sox made a move to bolster their bullpen by agreeing to terms with free agent reliever Edward Mujica, the Boston Herald reported Thursday night.

The Red Sox and Mujica have reportedly agreed to a two-year deal worth $9.5 million.

Mujica recorded a 2.78 ERA for the St. Louis Cardinals last season and took over the closer role in April for Mitchell Boggs. Mujica went on to notch 37 saves in 41 opportunities.

He struggled in September, due to a groin injury, and was replaced by Trevor Rosenthal, and did not appear in the World Series against the Red Sox.

Mujica has pitched for four teams in the past eight seasons with a 3.75 ERA in 381 games.
