What is the Red Sox’s plan at second base?

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ The Red Sox have a few different paths they could follow in 2021 when it comes to second base, a position that really needs to be improved. Following a last place finish in 2020, there are a slew of areas the Boston Red Sox need to improve upon to return to a competitive state in 2021. Along with addressing the starting rotation, bullpen and the outfield, the Red Sox have to find a solution at second base. While the rest of the infield is seemingly locked in with established stars (Xander Bogaerts and Rafael Devers) or a rising...

Red Sox avoid arbitration with Rafael Devers

Red Sox avoid arbitration with Rafael Devers

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports It looked shaky for a bit, but they got it done. Friday was the deadline for teams and arbitration-eligible players around the league to exchange figures for potential arbitration hearings. For the Red Sox, they had already agreed to one-year deals with all but one of their arbitration-eligible players back in December. The one player remaining, though, was also the most important in Rafael Devers. Today was an unofficial deadline to get that done before potentially going to a hearing. We won’t bury the lede anymore, though, as they did...

OTM Open Thread 1/15: It is Friday

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ Happy Friday everyone. Today is the final day for teams and players to exchange arbitration figures. That means Rafael Devers and the Red Sox need to exchange figures today or risk a trial. It is not expected that the two sides will negotiate toward a one-year settlement before a trial, which does not preclude a longer term deal but does make it more likely the two sides will go to a hearing. In other sports, the Celtics are expected to get back to action today, at least as of this writing. That could potentially change again. Who...

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ As the week has gone on it has seemed more and more likely that a trade involving Andrew Benintendi was coming, to the point that some expect it to be done by the end of the weekend.

That includes Rafael Devers. (Julian McWilliams; Boston Globe) First-year arbitration can be tricky in every season because of how important that figure will be...

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Rafael Devers did not look like himself at the plate for stretches in 2020, and defensively it was a really disappointing year. Turns out, the young third baseman was playing through an injury throughout the season. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) Old Friend Rusney Castillo was stuck in luxury tax purgatory for so much of his career with the Red Sox. He was a free agent this winter, and has signed with a new club.
