Brandon Drury

While a more under-the-radar option its hard to find a player who fits the Red Sox needs more than Drury this offseason. After signing with the Angels last offseason Drury quietly put together a very strong season in LA despite the Angels underperforming expectations.

Drury put together an impressive slash line of .262/.306/.497 with 26 homers and an .806 OPS from the right side of the plate. This performance demonstrated his ability to seamlessly slot into the Red Sox lineup at second base, a position where he contributed significantly on the defensive end with 5 OAA (Outs Above Average), landing him in the 89th percentile for second basemen.

With the Angels likely entering another rebuild, especially with Shohei Ohtani all but officially gone, a player of Drury's caliber could potentially become available for a reasonable price this offseason as Boston aims to fortify its middle infield.
