Yoenis Cespedes – Came to Boston in a trade with Oakland that included Jon Lester heading west. Cespedes did not impress in Boston hitting just .269 in 51 games with five home runs. He was sent to Detroit for Rick Porcello.
Jacoby Ellsbury – Became a free agent and moved on to the Yankees with a mega deal. Last season in Boston hit .298 and led the American League in stolen bases with 52. Finished second in 2011 MVP voting. Ellsbury is hitting just .265 in four seasons in New York.
Josh Reddick – Hit .248 in 141 games with Boston before being traded to Oakland for Andrew Bailey and Ryan Sweeney. In his first season in Oakland, Reddick hit 32 home runs. Now with Houston, he’s hitting over .300.
Daniel Nava – Nava was a feel good story working his way from independent ball to MLB. He was placed on waivers by the Red Sox and claimed by Tampa Bay. Nava is currently with Philadelphia and hitting near .300 as a part-time outfielder.
Adrian Gonzalez – Why not the outfield? Saw him play it in Houston when the Astros were a National League team. Gonzalez was part of the Nick Punto trade to the Dodgers that cleared money. He put up excellent numbers in parts of two seasons in Boston, hitting .321 with 42 home runs. Has never hit .300 with Dodgers.
