Red Sox: 3 players that could be moved before the Trade Deadline
The Red Sox could wheel and deal their way to a World Series
If we’ve learned one thing during Chaim Bloom’s tenure with the Red Sox it’s that he’s a damn wizard when it comes to the trade market. The Boston boss has fleeced more teams since getting here than anyone in history. As it stands right now, we have a heavy mix of pending free agents and players without defined roles that could be wearing new jerseys in 2022.
Had things gone differently in 2021 I wouldn’t already be looking toward the Trade Deadline but with the World Series so close, I think Chaim is going to pull the trigger. So far we’ve seen him move soon to be free agents, guys who just aren’t performing, and prospects who could net an even better return. He’s here to win and won’t lose a second of sleep over moving a player to better the lineup.
While the Red Sox have their needs, they also have some logjams at certain positions that could force some of our current favorites out the door in order to make room for some better components. I took a glance at our future free agents, as well as, the depth chart, and believe that the following three players could be on the move.
