Red Sox News & Links: Injury Updates On Vaughn Grissom, Jarren Duran

Photo by Barry Chin/The Boston Globe via Plus, are we overlooking Roberto Perez? There hasn’t been much chatter about Roberto Perez, the steady-gloved veteran catcher who signed a minor league deal with the Sox back in December. That’s because just about everyone has assumed the catching duties would once again be split by Connor Wong and Reese McGuire as Kyle Teel continues to sprinkle some seasoning on his game down in the minors.

The Red Sox made a move Friday that could impact their Opening Day roster. Boston reportedly agreed to a minor league contract with first baseman C.J. Cron, a 10-year MLB veteran who presumably will compete with Bobby Dalbec, among others, for a bench role behind Triston Casas. The Red Sox are buying low on Cron, […]
