Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Freed of restrictions in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Sunday that Nunez (knee) is healthy and will face no restrictions in spring training, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

Nunez, who officially re-signed with the Red Sox on a one-year contract Sunday that also includes a player option for 2019, passed his physical Thursday and was able to go through a workout Friday, according to Scott Lauber of ESPN.com. During that session, general manager Dave Dombrowski said Nunez allayed any concerns the organization had about the health of his knee, which he injured in the postseason and was later diagnosed with a strained PCL. Nunez is expected to receive extended bats in spring training as the Red Sox prepare him for an everyday role at second base to begin the season with Dustin Pedroia (knee) likely out until late May.

Red Sox's Craig Kimbrel: Will be used in non-save situations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kimbrel will be deployed in non-save situations this season, per manager Alex Cora, Jen McCaffrey of MassLive.com reports.

Cora explained his philosophy is to use his best reliever in the most important part of the game, whether that be the seventh, eighth or ninth inning. What constitutes as the 'most important' part of the game will change from game to game, but the manager doesn't feel it will cost Kimbrel too many saves. "People think it's a big adjustment. If you start looking at the numbers you don't lose too many saves if it's the way you want to use him," Cora said. "We're not talking about the lower third of the lineup. We're talking the middle of the lineup, eighth inning, certain situations. What I feel is game-on-the-line." Kimbrel had been off-the-charts bad in non-save situations in 2016 (5.12 ERA 14 BB, 19.1 IP), but improved dramatically last season when he posted a 0.64 ERA over 28 innings when a game was not on the line.

Red Sox's Ben Taylor: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox designated Taylor for assignment Sunday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Taylor was forced off the 40-man roster following the Red Sox's re-signing of infielder Eduardo Nunez (knee). Taylor, a 25-year-old right-hander, made 14 appearances for the big club in 2017, submitting a 5.19 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 18 strikeouts across 17.1 innings.

Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Re-signs with Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nunez (knee) signed a one-year contract with the Red Sox on Thursday, Robert Murray of FanRagSports.com reports.

Specifics regarding the deal have yet to be released, but assuming he passes his physical, Nunez should be back with the Red Sox in 2018. The 30-year-old split time between San Francisco and Boston last season, joining the Red Sox via trade in late July. While injuries limited him to 114 games, Nunez was once again productive when healthy, hitting a combined .313/.341/.460 with 12 homers and 24 stolen bases. A knee injury limited him to one game in ALDS, but he's expected to be healthy heading into spring training and should open the season as the team's starting second baseman with Dustin Pedroia (knee) expected to be sidelined until May, though he could be shifted to a super-utility role once Pedroia returns.

Red Sox's David Price: Reiterates elbow is healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Price said Tuesday that his left elbow is completely healthy heading into the upcoming season, Scott Lauber of ESPN.com reports. "I haven't had one instance this offseason, whether it was playing catch or doing anything on the field, where I was like, 'That doesn't feel right," Price said.

The second season of Price's seven-year, $217 million contract with the Red Sox was almost doomed from the start, as the southpaw reported soreness in his throwing elbow in spring training and was ultimately sidelined until late May. Upon returning to the mound, he struggled to find his All-Star form while fighting blister issues before the elbow soreness set in again, resulting in him being shut down for much of the second half before returning in September as a reliever. With a healthy offseason and a new manager in town in Alex Cora, Price noted that his mind is clear of the negativity that hounded him in 2017, but his ability to handle a heavy workload is a legitimate question following a tumultuous season full of fits and starts.
