Despite the fact that the president of operations of the Red SoxSam Kennedy, assured that his board has made two great offers to Xander Bogarts for him to stay on the team for the long haul, the last thing we know is that the Red Sox are not favorites to sign him in free agency.

According to the Dominican journalist Marino Pepén, correspondent for the Red Sox, there are three teams that are emerging as the great favorites and finalists to stay with Bogaerts during this winter market. According to the source, the Philadelphia Phillies they would lead the negotiations for Bogaerts, while later the Red Sox and San Diego Padres.

In addition to the three teams already mentioned, it is rumored that the Dodgers and Cubs would also be in contention to keep it.
