Updated: Red Sox sign Ellsbury, six others

The Red Sox have signed Jacoby Ellsbury.

No, it's not the long-term, blockbuster deal Ellsbury will undoubtedly get from somebody at the end of the 2013 season.

The Red Sox signed Ellsbury, who was up for arbitration, to a one-year, 9 million deal for the 2013 season that will bring him into unrestricted free agency.

He wasn't the only one signed though. Boston signed six other arbitration-eligible players, including newly acquired closer Joel Hanrahan to a one-year, 7.04 million deal.

Others who were signed include right-handed pitchers Alfredo Aceves, Andrew Bailey and Daniel Bard and left-handed pitchers Andrew Miller and Franklin Morales.
