Joely Rodriguez

The Boston pitching staff is the area of the roster that is likely to need the most changes going into 2024. The starting rotation rightly is going to get the most press this offseason, but the bullpen needs some work as well and one of the first things the Red Sox needs to do is decline Joely Rodriguez's option for 2024.

While Joely's option is only for $4.25 million for 2024 which is reasonable for a decent bullpen arm, Rodriguez hasn't been able to clear that bar as he posted a 6.55 ERA in 11 appearances with the Red Sox and couldn't stay on the field in 2023 with multiple stints on the injured list. Boston can simply do better than Joely when it comes to bullpen arms especially when you factor in the health questions.
