Varitek re-signed with the Sox in the offseason, agreeing to a four-year, $40 million contract. He was also named captain of the team. Varitek was solid behind the plate and got off to a strong start at the plate, but seemed to tire at the end of the year. He hit .281 on the season with 22 home runs and 70 RBIs.
