BREAKING NEWS!!! - Nathan Eovaldi has agreed to a deal with the Red Sox! The deal is expected to be a four-year $67.5M contract, pending physicals. - This caption will be updated as more information becomes available. WELCOME BACK TO BOSTON NATE!!!
According to multiple sources, negotiations between the Red Sox and Nathan Eovaldi are “intensifying.” Four years at about $17M per year is what is being discussed, sources say. - Please bring this man back 🙏
The Red Sox have been invited to the White House after their World Series Victory. - Alex Cora will attend, and the players will be able to decide whether or not they’d like to go.
Recently, the Sox have been linked to two former Yankee relievers in Free Agency. With the likely departure of Kimbrel, and Kelly still undecided, these two guys would be great options to fill the bullpen. - Would you like to see these two former Yankees join the Good Guys in Boston?
Here’s someone that many of you guys may not be familiar with, but could be a great pickup for the Sox this offseason. - Xavier Cedeno was recently non-tendered by the Milwaukee Brewers after being traded there mid-season from the Chicago White Sox. The 32-year old was someone I hoped the Red Sox would go after at the 2018 deadline, and ended up pitching incredibly for the Brewers, posting a 1.13 ERA in 15 games. Among relievers with at least 30 IP last season, he was Top 30 in both HR/9 and GB%. - And most importantly, HE’S A LEFTY!!! This could be a huge pickup for the Red Sox, as they desperately need a lefty out of the bullpen, and he could be an incredibly cheap option to fill that role. - So what do you guys think, should the Red Sox make a push for Cedeno? - HUGE shoutout to @designsbybrennan for doing this jersey swap for me, go give him a follow for some great swaps and other baseball content!!! - #redsox #redsoxnation #redsoxbaseball #goredsox #mlb #boston #bostonredsox #baseball #mlb #bostonbaseball #bostonstrong #bosox #majorleaguebaseball #beisbol #freeagency #xaviercedeno #freeagent #offseason
Teams are being told that the initial ask price for the 30 year-old Closer is a six-year deal. - A six-year deal essentially takes the Red Sox out of the equation for Kimbrel. However, I can’t really see any other teams giving Kimbrel a six-year deal either.
According to Mark Feisand, the Nathan Eovaldi market is heating up. At this point the Red Sox and Astros are the front-runners, but many other teams remain in the mix.
According to “League Sources,” The Red Sox and Pirates are in the VERY early stages of discussing a trade to send Francisco Cervelli to Boston. - The 32 Year-Old Catcher slashed .259/.378/.431 in 104 games for the Pirates last year, accumulating 12 HR and a 3.3 WAR. - Cervelli would obviously be a huge upgrade at Catcher, and his presence would likely displace 2 of our 3 current Catchers. - Cervelli is in the third and final year of a 3-year, $31M contract, being owed $11.5M in 2019. - The source for these rumors is Jason Rollison, who is a baseball analyst with a focus on the Pirates. Though it isn’t the most reliable source, I thought I’d let you guys know about these rumors anyway, mostly because I’d really like to see the Sox somehow work out a way to bring Cervelli to Boston for a year. Thanks to @pirates.strong for letting me know about these rumors. - Swipe to see the Source 👉
Breaking News: - The Red Sox and Tyler Thornburg have a agreed to a one-year, $1.75M non-guaranteed contract to avoid salary arbitration. - The Red Sox have also announced that they will tender a contract to all 29 remaining unsigned players on the Major League roster, which includes, but is not limited to: Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley Jr., Brock Holt, Sandy Leon, Blake Swihart, Eduardo Rodriguez, Matt Barnes, Heath Hembree, Brandon Workman, and Steven Wright.
Our hero has returned. - Tony Renda has agreed to return to the Red Sox on a minor league contract. - Renda performed well offensively in the minors, hitting .318/.373/.453 with five homers in 69 games for Portland and Pawtucket. - In the Majors, he is 1 for 1 when give the opportunity to score the game-winning run to sweep the New York Yankees.
According to Joel Sherman, the Red Sox are one of five teams who have shown interest in Mariners closer Edwin Diaz. Other teams interested include the Mets, Yankees, Phillies, and Braves. - Don’t get too excited though, I highly doubt Diaz is headed for Boston. The Red Sox don’t necessarily have the resources to acquire Diaz, and it seems like the Mariners are looking to package Diaz along with Cano, whose contract we’d be foolish to take on.
Former Red Sox Pitcher Justin Haley has signed with the Samsung Lions of Korea. - Haley pitched in four games for the Red Sox in 2018, and was outrighted off the 40-man roster at the end of the season. - Like William Cuevas, Haley will head to Korea as a World Series Champion. Best of luck to him with the Lions.
Longtime Red Sox/Paw Sox Catcher Dan Butler has announced his retirement from Major League Baseball. He has been hired by the Arizona Diamondbacks as a bullpen Catcher. He played 2 games with the Red Sox this year, and will retire with a World Series Ring. - Best of luck to Dan on his future endeavors. Thank You for everything you’ve done for this organization 🙏
Thanks to everyone who helped me get to this point. Never thought we could grow this big in just under 10 months. - Beyond Thankful for every single one of you 🙏 #Onto10k #TzuWeiLinIsTheGreatestPlayerOfThisGeneration
World Series Champion: Ryan Brasier - Ryan Brasier was drafted by the Angels in the sixth round of the 2007 MLB Draft. He made his debut with the Angels in 2013, followed by Tommy John surgery, a lot of time in the minor leagues, and eventually, Japan. - As he headed into the offseason following the end of his 2017 season in Japan, Brasier decided to hold tryouts for a few MLB teams. He used his friends bachelor party in Arizona as an opportunity to hold a showcase for a few clubs. - Over a month had passed since his showcase, and Brasier still hadn’t heard from any teams. - Finally, an opportunity arose. The Boston Red Sox called, looking for someone to fill some innings during Spring Training. They did not offer him a job, he’d have to earn that and that - which is exactly what he did. - In his time with the Paw Sox, Brasier put up a 1.34 ERA, and allowed only one earned run in his last 20 outings, earning him his first major-league promotion in nearly five years. - And from there, we all know what happened. Brasier never went back to Pawtucket, posting a 1.60 ERA in 34 appearances with the Red Sox, emerging as one of, if not, the club’s best relievers. He pitched to a 1.04 ERA in the postseason, and was a key part in bringing home a World Series Championship. - The unlikeliest of heroes, but a hero nonetheless. Thank You @ryan_brasier
Thankful for this - What are you guys thankful for?
