(Reuters) - Veteran Boston Red Sox pitcher Vicente Padilla has signed a one-year deal with the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks of the Japan Pacific League, according to a report on the MLB.com.

Padilla's deal with the Hawks, who last won the Pacific League in 2011 and finished third last season, is worth $3.25 million, the report said quoting sources.

The 35-year-old Nicaraguan compiled a 4-1 record with a 4.50 earned run average and one save over 56 relief appearances last season for the Boston Red Sox.

The right-handed pitcher, an All-Star in 2002, has also played for the Arizona Diamondbacks, Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers and the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 14-year career.
