Though the details of the contract haven’t yet been disclosed, it reportedly has a full no-trade clause, but will allow him to opt out upon the return of outfielder Grady Sizemore, who is out due to a back injury.
Damon hasn’t been in spring training at all, so the word is that he’ll have to take some time to prepare before he’s ready to start a full season.
