Feds Clear Moncada To Sign With Any Club

(ObstructedView.Net Photo)The US Government has cleared Cuban phenom Yoan Moncada to sign with any MLB team. The U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) says Moncada may now be "generally licensed as an unblocked national". The Red Sox and several other clubs have held private workouts with Moncada—who is expected to benefit from a bidding war that will net the 19-year old upwards of $80 million. The Red Sox exceeded their allotted bonus pool, so they would be penalized for signing Moncada. The penalty is a 100 percent tax on their excess pool payments and...

Yoan Moncada isn't officially a free agent yet, not until Major League Baseball says that's the case, but it seems as if he has all the paperwork he needs to get to that point now, and that's...

Wade Miley hasn't made many headlines, but he could be the steal of the offseason for the Red Sox starting rotation.

Brandon Workman still hopes to be starter

MASHANTUCKET, Conn. -- When the Boston Red Sox acquired a trio of pitchers to fill out their rotation this offseason, it was a tough pill for Brandon Workman to swallow. The right-hander has always viewed himself as a starter. But when the opportunity finally came last season, Workman failed to take advantage of it. Given a long leash, the 26-year-old struggled mightily. He posted a 5.36 ERA in 15 starts, earning his first and only win in his fourth start before being on the losing end of nine of his final 11.

Vazquez in his comfort zone behind plate

BOSTON -- Between Boston and Triple-A Pawtucket, the Red Sox’s Christian Vazquez played in 121 games last season, 106 of them behind the plate. That’s a full load for any catcher, and more games than he’d ever played in a single season. He was entitled to take the winter off. Instead, Vazquez elected to play winter ball in his native Puerto Rico, appearing in 33 more games for the San Juan Senators in the Liga de Beisbol Profesional Roberto Clemente, named after that island’s greatest star.

Red Sox should wait it out with Allen Craig

Red Sox should wait it out with Allen Craig

No offense to Ryan Hanigan, who could supply minimal offense and still be a good backup catcher, but the Red Sox sold low on Will Middlebrooks last month and they know it.It would be foolish to do the same with Allen Craig.Look, we know 91 losses and a last-place finish last season make 2013 seem like eons ago. But you don’t need Doc Brown to fire up the flux capacitor to recall when Craig was the best clutch hitter in the National League, to say nothing of the Cardinals hitter the Sox were most concerned with facing in the World Series.
