Red Sox open to seeking shortstop by 2022

Despite having an extraordinary player like Xander Bogaerts, the Boston Red Sox they would be open to looking for a new short field for the season 2022 of the Major League Baseball – MLB, this according to rumors.

According to a report by Jim Bowden of The Athletic, the Red Sox would be totally willing to go into free agency for a new shortstop, being something that would point to both the present and the future of the Boston organization, this no matter what it has to Xander Bogaerts, who is currently one of the best shortstops in the major leagues.

Rumors arose that Bogaerts would leave his contract and would be another free agent in the MLB, but no, it is until 2022 that the aforementioned player can do such a thing, but even knowing that this player will be at least one more year, the The Red Sox would look for a new shortstop, looking for that in an offseason where there are extremely attractive names like Trevor Story, Marcus Semien, Carlos Correa and Corey Seager.

In addition, the Aruba-born player is open to playing second or third base, so the Red Sox could grab the services of a new shortstop and move him to the right side of the infield. From a financial point of view, Bogaerts probably wouldn’t protest.

Options in the market

  • Carlos Correa
  • Javier Baez
  • Trevor story
  • Marcus semien
  • Corey seager

The five players are wonderful and would fall flat on the Red Sox, especially any of the first two, who are Puerto Rican, like team manager Alex Cora, something that could play something favorable. In addition, we cannot forget that a while ago, those in Boston were interested in Semien, who is free and can play both shortstop and second base and he proved it in 2021, being the best bartender in the entire MLB.

The Red Sox should have some financial flexibility this winter, especially if JD Martinez turns down his player option of $ 19.37 million, so they could easily look for a new shortstop, no question.
