Alex Gonzalez is in Boston;
Will Have Physical Today

Pending the outcome of a physical he is scheduled to undergo this morning after flying here yesterday from his native Venezuela, Alex Gonzalez is poised to replace Edgar Renteria as shortstop for the Red Sox. ... The Sox are expected to announce Gonzalez's signing after his physical. His agent, Eric Goldschmidt, confirmed yesterday that the player agreed to a one-year deal for $3 million, with standard contract bonuses for awards. The Orioles, Goldschmidt said, actually offered more money, with the idea that if they didn't trade shortstop Miguel Tejada, Gonzalez would play third base, with Melvin Mora shifting to the outfield. But Gonzalez preferred to remain at short and sign with the Sox. -- 02.01.06, Gordon Edes, Boston Globe
