Daily Red Sox Links: Pablo Sandoval, Mookie Betts, Rafael Devers

Today’s links look at the competition at third base, Rafael Devers’ progression towards the majors, and Sam Travis’ recovery. John Farrell had plenty of praise for Pablo Sandoval, but he acknowledged there will still be a position battle at third base. (Jason Mastrodonato; Boston Herald) No surprise here: Mookie Betts was named the team’s MVP. (Ian Browne; RedSox.com) Rafael Devers is being prepared for major-league life, and is on a similar trajectory to that of Xander Bogaerts at a similar age.

Pablo Sandoval inexplicably thinking about playing in World Baseball Classic

Prior to the Boston Baseball Writers’ Dinner Thursday night, Red Sox manager John Farrell rattled off which of his players he believed would be participating in the World Baseball Classic. Starting pitchers David Price, Rick Porcello and Chris Sale? Nope. Eduardo Rodriguez? We’ll see. The lefty was slated to get his right knee checked in […]

Sandoval’s offseason transformation doesn't guarantee he's Sox starting third baseman

Pablo Sandoval isn’t messing around this winter. The presumed Red Sox starting third baseman has been posting Instagram videos all winter illustrating his progress as he returns from shoulder surgery. Overweight last year, he has looked trim this offseason, and his latest video is another example — boxing. Judge the southpaw’s form for yourself. Tomando […]

Today’s links look at Mookie Betts’ expectations, who’s winning the competition for the last rotation spots, and the corner infield positions. Mookie Betts shattered his high expectations in 2016, and now he’s setting himself up for a ridiculously high bar to clear in 2017. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal) Chris Sale is good at a lot of things, with one of them apparently being hitting opponents. (Matt Kory; BP Boston) There is still a long way to go, but Dave Dombrowski seems like he’s leaning towards the two veterans for the last two rotation spots. (Rob Bradford;...

Braves have expressed interest in Trevor Plouffe, per report

Things have been pretty quiet around the Atlanta Braves for a while now but that doesn’t mean they are set for spring training. The Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo reports that Atlanta is among the teams that have expressed interest in free agent third baseman Trevor Plouffe. Plouffe’s career with the Twins went poof. He was released and now is an intriguing extra piece for a team that might be looking for a bargain and the potential for a high return. The Red Sox kicked the tires as a backup for Pablo Sandoval but may not have room on their roster. The Braves also expressed interest, and...

Wait A Minute. Really? Panda and Moreland At The Corners?

Wait A Minute. Really? Panda and Moreland At The Corners?

Sandoval (L); Moreland (R)As we all bask in the glory of the Red Sox off-season—and project them as a 'slam dunk' to repeat as AL East Champs—a stark reality is beginning to set in with the New Year. Pablo Sandoval and Mitch Moreland are likely to start the season as our corner infielders? Say what? Apparently, Dave Dombrowski is comfortable with that (at least about The Panda) saying, "I think he can come back and be a good, dependable, everyday third baseman for us, from an offensive and a defensive perspective. I think if he can go out there and hit .270 to .275 and hit 12 to 15 home...

Has anybody noticed how uncomfortably thin the Red Sox depth is?

OK, they didn’t take the three-year, $60 million plunge with Edwin Encarnacion. Instead the Red Sox are building this team around pitching, defense, and the hope that specific skill-sets and assumed evolution will make up for David Ortiz. It could work. Right-handed starter? You’ve got the new version of Pablo Sandoval, a Gold Glove first […]

Red Sox Seek Yet More 'Panda Insurance' With Plouffe

Red Sox Seek Yet More 'Panda Insurance' With Plouffe

(USAToday Photo)Matt Dominguez, Rafael Devers, Josh Rutledge, Brock Holt—and now (possibly) Trevor Plouffe. The Red Sox are rumored to be seeking even more 'Panda Insurance' at 3B by feeling out Plouffe's availability and cost. The 30-year old former Twin was let go by Minnesota after an injury-riddled 2016. Despite a professed "commitment" to Pablo Sandoval at The Hot Corner—nobody really believes it. The Panda track record in Boston is not good—so Sox honcho Dave Dombrowski (who has no skin in the Sandoval game)—is likely to have a very short leash on the Panda in 2017.

Red Sox showing interest in Trevor Plouffe

The former Twin would make a lot of sense for the bench While the Red Sox have more-or-less declared their offseason complete, they might still have a small move left in them. In this case, the addition of Trevor Plouffe, who Evan Drellich says is on a short list of free agents the Red Sox remain interested in. Plouffe actually makes a lot of sense for the Red Sox in much the same way that Chris Young did last offseason. The Red Sox have a clear need for insurance in the infield, particularly against left-handed pitchers given the vulnerability of Mitch Moreland and Pablo Sandoval at the...
