Red Sox Free Agency: 3 players Boston should sign when the lockout ends
The Red Sox must be aggressive when Free Agency resumes
Here we are, Red Sox Nation. Over a month into the offseason and a little over a week away from Christmas and the baseball world has come to a complete stop. The current CBA has expired and the owners didn’t wait a moment to initiate a lockout. Until the ice thaws between the owners and players, we won’t be getting a whiff of news for the 2022 season.
Chaim Bloom and his team were able to put pen to paper with a few players before things went sideways and their patience could prove wise, but Boston needs to be aggressive when the time comes. I don’t expect the Red Sox front office to start writing blank checks to free agents but I do expect them to address some of their glaring needs from this past season.
It’s no secret that the team could use some help in the bullpen while second base still remains a decent-sized question mark. With plenty of names still on the board, there won’t be a shortage of deals hitting the newswire once the doors open back up on the league and these are three players that the Red Sox should go after.
