Who is Tyler Thornburg?

Who is Tyler Thornburg?

Tyler Thornburg was the first big acquisition on Tuesday, so let’s learn a little more about him. The Red Sox took the baseball world by storm on Tuesday, making two major trades and then signing Mitch Moreland for some reason. Obviously, the Chris Sale trade has dominated the headlines. He’s undeniably the best player who has changed uniforms this winter, and the Red Sox sent arguably the best prospect in baseball to Chicago along with one of the more exciting young arms in any organization. It also gave the team a fearful top-three, and played into the narrative of Dave Dombrowski not...

Mitch Moreland looks forward to joining ‘gritty group of guys’ in Red Sox lineup

The Red Sox opened the offseason hoping to add a left-handed hitting first baseman to provide some lineup balance and give Hanley Ramirez a chance to stay fresh at DH. On Thursday, they introduced him. The signing of Mitch Moreland may have been overshadowed by the Chris Sale blockbuster, but the Red Sox still have […]

Red Sox Pick Up Josh Rutledge As 'Panda Insurance'

Red Sox Pick Up Josh Rutledge As 'Panda Insurance'

()In a move reflecting their angst about 3B, the Red Sox selected old friend Josh Rutledge in the Rule Five Draft. Rutledge—a utility infielder in the mold of Brock Holt—had played for Boston in both 2015 and 2016. He signed this off-season with the Colorado Rockies. The move fills out the 40-man roster, which will require paring one player, once new 1B/DH Mitch Moreland is officially signed. Clearly, the thought of third base hinging on the caloric intake of Pablo Sandoval is frightening—so having both Holt and Rutledge as 'Panda Insurance" is a prudent move.

Red Sox sign Mitch Moreland to 1-year deal

Red Sox sign Mitch Moreland to 1-year deal

The Red Sox and Mitch Moreland have agreed to a one-year deal worth $5 million. If this is the answer at designated hitter, it’s one very underwhelming conclusion to an otherwise overwhelming day. To be clear, Mitch Moreland is not the DH. But he does “solve the problem” as it were by playing first base and moving Hanley Ramirez out of the field. Moreland is a decent fielder. He’s either consistently average or above that depending on what metric you believe, but his 2016 Gold Glove season is an outlier at the moment. Maybe he really did improve, but based on one season’s...

Red Sox Complete Tri-Fecta: Sign DH/1B Mitch Moreland

(USAToday Sports)Multiple sources now indicate that the Red Sox have signed DH/1B Mitch Moreland to a one-year contract—pending him passing a physical. This makes three impact deals concluded today by President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski. And, silly us, labelled him "Do Nothing Dave" just this morning. Sorry. The 31-year old Moreland is a left-handed bat (something Dombrowski wanted) who can play first-base and DH—giving potential rest to Hanley Ramirez. Moreland is not an average hitter anymore (if he ever was one). In 2016, he hit just. .233—although he did clout 22 HRs...
