Meet The New Guy: Adam Duvall

He’s power hitting outfielder, something the Red Sox don’t currently have. Who is he and where did he come from? He’s Adam Duvall, Kentucky-born power hitter. The Red Sox signed him to a one-year, $7 million deal off the free agent scrap heap.

Outside The Confines: A new team in on Correa? It’s a mystery!

Photo by Michael Reaves/ Hot stove season has more plot twists than the new Knives Out movie. If you want baseball drama, look no further than the ongoing saga of Carlos Correa. Baseball’s favorite villain when he was with the Astros, Correa then signed a free agent deal with the Twins. After only one season, he decided to exercise his opt-out option and head for free agency yet again. And what a roller coaster that has been.
