  • Red Sox's Frank German: Traded to Red Sox

    German was sent from the Yankees to the Red Sox along with Adam Ottavino on Monday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    German appears to be the sweetener to get the Red Sox to take on the money left on Ottavino's contract. German is at least a back-end starter prospect, possessing a fastball that can touch 98 mph but shaky command. It's possible such a profile winds up working out better in relief. The 23-year-old righty has so far topped out at High-A, where he produced a 3.79 ERA, a 25.3 percent strikeout rate and a 10.8 percent walk rate in 2019.

  • Red Sox's Adam Ottavino: Shipped to Boston

    The Yankees traded Ottavino along with pitching prospect Frank German to the Red Sox on Monday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

    Ottavino was excellent in his first season in New York in 2019, with his 31.1 percent strikeout rate canceling out a 10.6 percent walk rate and leading to a 1.90 ERA. That ERA spiked all the way to 5.89 in a small sample of 18.1 innings last season, though his underlying numbers told a more optimistic story, as his strikeout rate fell only slightly to 29.4 percent while his walk rate came in at a more palatable 10.6 percent. Still, the Yankees evidently don't believe he'll be worth the $8 million he's scheduled to make this season, so they sent him to their top rival in what appears to be little more than a salary dump. The move potentially boosts Ottavino's fantasy value, as Matt Barnes is hardly an immovable object at closer in Boston should the 35-year-old return to his previous form.

  • Red Sox's Garrett Richards: Signs with Red Sox

    Richards signed a one-year, $10 million contract with the Red Sox on Saturday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Richards was in active discussions with Boston recently, and the two sides were able to reach an agreement, pending a physical. The right-hander lost out on his spot in the starting rotation with the Padres in 2020 and posted a 4.03 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over 51.1 innings across 14 appearances (10 starts) during the regular season. Richards should compete for a rotation spot with his new club heading into the 2021 campaign.

  • Red Sox's Enrique Hernandez: Signs with Red Sox

    Hernandez signed a two-year, $14 million contract with the Red Sox on Friday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Hernandez will head to Boston for the 2021 campaign after spending the past six seasons with the Dodgers. The middle infielder slashed .230/.270/.410 with five home runs and 20 RBI during the abbreviated 2020 season after hitting double-digit home runs in each of the previous three years. He should work at second base and in a utility role for his new club in 2021.

  • Red Sox's Zac Grotz: Latches on with Boston

    Grotz signed a minor-league deal with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The 27-year-old appeared in five games for the Mariners in 2020 and surrendered 12 runs over 7.1 innings before being outrighted at the start of September. Grotz will join Boston at big-league spring training and have an outside shot of making the Opening Day roster.

  • Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia: Still no comeback plans

    Pedroia (knee) is not planning a comeback, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    The Red Sox and Pedroia are in a bit of an awkward situation. The highly-respected veteran is still under contract for another season and is taking up a spot on the team's 40-man roster, forcing Boston to drop other players to complete their offseason moves. Chronic knee troubles have limited him to a total of just nine games over the last three years, however, causing him to step away from the team in May of 2019. There's been no resolution to his situation thus far, but with the 37-year-old seemingly no closer to contemplating a return to action, one could be coming soon.

  • Red Sox's Martin Perez: Back with Boston

    Perez signed a one-year deal with the Red Sox on Saturday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The Red Sox had previously declined a $6.25 million club option for the lefty. His new deal will be worth $4.5 million, with a $6 million club option and a $500,000 buyout for 2022, so Boston will wind up saving a small amount of money while still getting to bring Perez back. The 29-year-old looked like a legitimate rotation piece last season but not a particularly good one, as his 4.50 ERA in 12 starts came with an unimpressive combination of a 17.6 percent strikeout rate and 10.7 percent walk rate.

  • Red Sox's Rafael Devers: Reaches deal without arbiter

    Devers and the Red Sox avoided arbitration Friday by coming to terms on a one-year, $4.575 million deal, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    Devers was decent but hardly dominant in 2020, posting a .263/.310/.483 slash line with career worsts in both walk rate (5.2 percent) and strikeout rate (27.0 percent). His 109 wRC+ fell roughly at the midpoint between his poor 2018 season (90 wRC+) and his strong 2019 campaign (132 wRC+). The Red Sox will be hoping that the 24-year-old's 2019 form best represents who he'll be going forward.

  • Red Sox's Luis Ravelo: Signs with Boston

    Ravelo agreed to a $525,000 deal with the Red Sox on Friday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

    This signing bonus undersells Ravelo's talent. He is a slick-fielding, switch-hitting shortstop with a mature approach. Ravelo could develop a plus hit tool, which could unlock 20-plus homer power. He lacks plus speed, however.

  • Red Sox's Miguel Bleis: Gets seven figures from Red Sox

    Bleis signed with the Red Sox for $1.5 million Friday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

    A 6-foot-3, 170-pound outfielder from the Dominican Republic, Bleis is one of the better athletes in this class. His ceiling is very high, but there are some big questions about his hit tool at this stage. If he keeps his strikeout rate in check in the Dominican Summer League, his stock will climb.

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: Nearing return to mound work

    Sale (elbow) is scheduled to throw off a mound in late January, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The veteran left-hander remains without an official timeline for his return, but a return to mound work represents a significant step in his recovery from Tommy John surgery. Sale underwent the procedure in March 2020 and figures to be sidelined for much of the first half of the 2021 campaign, but a more concrete timeline should come into focus and he ramps up his rehab work.
