 he ran into problems both Darren Daulton Jersey , on and off the field.TheWashington Post's Chelsea Janes(h/t NBC Sports' Craig Calcaterra)reported Tuesday that Werth was arrested for driving under the influence while he was attempting to crack the Seattle Mariners' roster:"Former Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth pled guilty last week to driving under the influence in the Scottsdale area. The arrest occurred in April, when Werth was playing at the Mariners鈥?spring training facility in nearby Peoria. The court sentenced Werth to a diversion program, ordered drug and alcohol screening, charged him more than $1,600 in fines and fees, and suspended his driver鈥檚 license."Werth previously served five days in jail back in 2015 afterpleading guiltyto a 2014 arrest for driving 105 mph. According to theWashington Post'sAdam Kilgore, the outfielder said "I've learned my lesson" following that incident.After spending the previous seven years with the Washington Nationals , Werthsigneda minor league deal with Seattle near the end of March. He would hit .206/.297/.389 with four home runs, 11 doubles and 19 RBI in 36 games at Triple-A Tacoma this year.The former MLB All-Star did not appear in the majors this season.Werth announced hisretirementin June and was inducted into the Nationals'Ring of Honorearlier this month. Boston Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Thursday that infielder Eduardo Nunez exercised his player option for 2019, according to Jason Mastrodonato of theBoston Herald.Per Spotrac, Nunez will make $5 million next season.After hitting a career-best .313 in 114 games split between the San Francisco Giants and Red Sox in 2017, Nunez signed a two-year deal with Boston that included a player option for 2019.The 31-year-old veteran appeared in 127 games in 2018, spending time at both second base and third base. He hit .265 with 10 home runs, 44 RBI Tim McCarver Jersey , 56 runs and seven stolen bases.Nunez also appeared in eight playoff games during Boston's run to its fourth World Series title since 2004.He hit .231 with one homer and four RBI during the postseason, highlighted by athree-run home run in Game 1 of the World Series.During his nine-year MLB career, Nunez has played for the New York Yankees, Minnesota Twins, Giants and Red Sox.Nunez was named to the 2016 AL All-Star team as a member of the Twins before he was traded to San Francisco. He hit .288 with a career-high 16 home runs, 67 RBI and 40 stolen bases that season.His greatest value stems from his versatility, as Nunez has played second base Pete Rose Jersey , third base, shortstop, left field and right field.While it is unclear if Nunez will have a full-time starting role for Boston next season, he should see plenty of action in a super-utility role regardless.
