Red Sox OF picture coming into focus

SAN DIEGO -- Thursday’s trade of Yoenis Cespedes to the Detroit Tigers for pitcher Rick Porcello provides some clarity to how the Red Sox outfield is expected to line up in 2015. Rusney Castillo was signed last August to be the center fielder. Hanley Ramirez was signed last month to be the left fielder. The right fielder will be Shane Victorino, if he is healthy and not traded, with Mookie Betts becoming the team’s fourth outfielder, or the everyday right fielder if Victorino is hurt or traded.

Shane Victorino expects to be the Red Sox' starting right fielder in 2015

Shane Victorino expects he'll be the one starting in right field for the Red Sox come Opening Day, but at the moment, that's not an easy scenario to imagine. The Red Sox have many outfielders and only three starting spots to split between them. But if you ask Shane Victorino, there's no question that one of those three jobs is locked up. Victorino made it clear to WEEI's Rob Bradford that, at least in his mind, right field is his to lose: But if I'm healthy if there's a better outfielder in right field then show me and go out there and do it. I'm not saying that in a cocky or arrogant way....

Can the Red Sox afford to keep Shane Victorino?

A $13 million bench bat is usually the sign of a contract gone horribly wrong, but Shane Victorino might fit perfectly into Boston's plans for 2015. It's no secret that the Red Sox have more outfielders than they have room for. Just for fun, let's go down the list: Rusney Castillo Mookie Betts Yoenis Cespedes Daniel Nava Hanley Ramirez Shane Victorino Jackie Bradley Jr. Allen Craig Brock Holt That's a lot of bodies! And even if we're giving, say, Allen Craig, Daniel Nava, and Brock Holt credit for being infielders, the Red Sox would still have to cut two of them and another one of the...
