Former Boston Red Sox outfielder/first baseman Franchy Cordero signed with the Baltimore Orioles after an unsuccessful post-trade stint.
Justin Verlander has garnered a lot of interest in Major League Baseball free agency and would make a lot of sense for the Boston Red Sox for a number of reasons. And Catherine Varitek added another (very valid) reason why the Red Sox should sign the 2022 American League Cy Young winner.
After non-tendering multi-time All-Star Cody Bellinger this offseason, the Los Angeles Dodgers could be turning around and adding another one. Sports Illustrated’s Pat Ragazzo reports Saturday that the Dodgers are showing interest in free agent slugger J.D. Martinez. Ragazzo notes that Martinez worked with Dodgers hitting coach Robert Van...
The Arizona Diamondbacks made a move Thursday to try to shore up their shaky bullpen. Arizona -- like the Boston Red Sox -- didn't feature a strong bullpen in 2022.

Dansby Swanson has been one of the cornerstones for the Atlanta Braves during their current run of glory that has seen them win five consecutive National League East titles and the 2021 World Series.

The Red Sox have signed former Braves reliever Chris Martin to a two-year deal:. The Braves didn’t bring Martin back after a solid postseason because signs of regression were very present. Martin was good for the Braves after being acquired from the Rangers in 2019, and after being let go, Martin signed a prove-it deal with the Cubs. Martin struggled, but he was a new man after being traded to the Dodgers this past season. Before being shipped off, Martin had a 4.31 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in Chicago. For the Dodgers, he posted a 1.46 ERA and 0.52 WHIP over 24.2 innings. The Red Sox saw enough to give him one more big contract. Congrats, Chris.

It’s been a weird few days for the Red Sox. After losing out on José Abreu, they thought they’d reeled in former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Zach Eflin. Instead, he parlayed their offer into an identical one from the Tampa Bay Rays and is signing with them, instead. Locking him in for three years and $40M was a risk given his injury history, so don’t let this keep you up at night.
Sometimes the jokes are just too easy to resist making, and that was the case for the Red Sox on Friday. Boston reportedly signed relief pitcher Chris Martin to a two-year deal to help bolster its bullpen. If you thought his name sounded familiar, it’s probably because it is. The...
The Boston Red Sox have a lengthy to-do list this offseason as they look to bounce-back from a last-place 2022 campaign. Bolstering the outfield should be among their top priorities. There are some decent options in free agency, but the most intriguing name can be found on the trade market....

"We don't want another situation like Mookie [Betts]." Red Sox icon David Ortiz doesn’t want his old team to experience some déjà vu. Nor does he think they want to, either. Ortiz believes that Boston will be able to keep shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who is currently a...
According to reports, Dave Dombrowski and Xander Bogaerts will get a chance to re-familiarize themselves with each other soon. The Phillies are aggressively pursuing shortstops and will meet with Bogaerts before the Winter Meetings begin Monday, according to Jayson Stark of The Athletic.
