  • Red Sox's Gorkys Hernandez: Signs MiLB deal with Boston

    Hernandez signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Hernandez was non-tendered by the Giants at the end of November after slashing .234/.285/.391 with 15 home runs and 40 RBI in 142 games. The 31-year-old can play all three outfield spots and provides some organizational depth with Andrew Benintendi, Jackie Bradley and Mookie Betts set to start in the outfield for Boston.

  • Red Sox's Andrew Benintendi: New leadoff man in 2019

    Manager Alex Cora said Benintendi will bat leadoff in 2019, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Benintendi primarily hit second in 2018, but he'll swap places in the order with Mookie Betts next season as the Red Sox look to maximize Betts' value. The 24-year-old hit atop the order 21 times last season -- primarily when Betts was unavailable -- slashing .322/.381/.598 with five homers and three stolen bases in those contests. While his move to the leadoff spot will likely cut into his RBI total in 2019, he should benefit from an uptick in runs with Betts and J.D. Martinez both hitting behind him.

  • Red Sox's Mookie Betts: Moving to second in order

    Manager Alex Cora said Betts will hit second in 2019, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Betts and Andrew Benintendi will swap places in the order in an attempt to maximize Betts' value. The 2018 AL MVP hit a ridiculous .346/.438/.640 with 32 homers and 30 stolen bases across 136 games, though he failed to reach 100 RBI for the first time in three seasons given his placement atop the order. Shifting Betts to the No. 2 hole should allow the star to contribute more evenly across the board in 2019 (after racking up 129 runs compared to 80 RBI).

  • Red Sox's Chris Sale: No structural damage to shoulder

    Sale has no structural damage to his shoulder and should be fully recovered after an offseason of rest, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Sale dealt with tendinitis, which caused him a lot of pain but isn't expected to have lasting effects. That pain was especially serious after he returned from the disabled list for one start in early August, which led to him being placed right back on the DL. The news is undoubtedly a positive for Sale, though it may take some time before confidence in his healthy is fully restored.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Signs with Boston

    Eovaldi inked a deal with the Red Sox on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Per Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, the terms of his contract are four years and $67.5 million.

    It shouldn't come as any surprise that Boston wanted Eovaldi back in town following his performance in the postseason, during which he logged a 1.61 ERA and 0.81 WHIP with a 16:3 K:BB across 22.1 innings. His most impressive performance arguably came against the Dodgers in Game 3 of the Fall Classic, where the right-hander threw six-plus frames in extra innings to keep the rest of the staff as fresh as possible for the remainder of the series. Eovaldi began the 2018 campaign in Tampa Bay before getting acquired by Boston before the non-waiver trade deadline and finished the year with a 3.81 ERA and 8.2 K/9 in 22 appearances (21 starts). He will slide right back into the middle of the Red Sox's rotation behind Chris Sale and David Price.

  • Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Inks deal with Red Sox

    Thornburg signed a one-year, $1.75 million non-guaranteed contract with Boston on Friday.

    This deal allowed Thornburg and the club to avoid arbitration heading into the 2019 season. The right-hander appeared in 25 games for the Red Sox this past year, logging a pedestrian 5.63 ERA and 1.58 WHIP with 21 strikeouts in 24 innings of relief. He will look to secure an Opening Day roster spot this spring, though that is far from a certainty considering how his previous two years have unfolded in Boston. Thronburg's deal also includes $400,000 in potential bonuses for appearances at the major-league level.

  • Red Sox's Tony Renda: Remains with Red Sox

    Renda signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Friday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Renda was designated for assignment at the start of November but will remain in the Red Sox organization for now. The 27-year-old slashed .318/.373/.453 between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket, and will continue to provide organizational depth at second base as Dustin Pedroia continues his recovery from his knee issues.

  • Red Sox's Austin Maddox: Sent outright to Triple-A

    Maddox (shoulder) was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Maddox will lose his place on the 40-man roster to make room for a prospect who needed protecting from the Rule 5 draft. He underwent surgery on his right rotator cuff near the end of September and is slated to miss the entire 2019 season while rehabbing.

  • Red Sox's Darwinzon Hernandez: Added to 40-man roster

    Hernandez's contract was selected from Double-A Portland on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    This was expected, as the well-regarded prospect needed to be protected from the Rule 5 draft. Hernandez flashed his upside in 2018, posting a combined 3.53 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 11.3 K/9 across 107 innings with Portland and High-A Salem. Despite the southpaw's electric stuff, his command issues (5.0 career BB/9) could ultimately land him in the bullpen long term.
