The Red Sox finalized one-year deals with 15 players on their 40-man roster Tuesday, including four players expected to be part of the club's Opening Day roster.

Many of the players signed have yet to reach the big leagues. The rest have somewhere between a few months and less than three years of service time. As such, they lack the leverage of salary arbitration.

Clay Buchholz was signed for 555,000; Daniel Bard for 505,000; Darnell McDonald for 470,000; and Jed Lowrie for 450,000.

The remaining 11 players - catchers Luis Exposito and Mark Wagner; outfielders Ryan Kalish and Josh Reddick; infielders Lars Anderson, Oscar Tejeda, Yamaico Navarro; and pitchers Scott Atchison, Michael Bowden, Felix Doubront and Stolmy Pimentel -- all signed for either the major league minimum of 414,000 or, in the case of Anderson, Bowden, Doubront, Kalish and Reddick, slightly higher.
