Red Sox still searching for middle-of-lineup bat

Giancarlo Stanton wasn't a match for the Red Sox, but they weren't thrilled to have him go to the Yankees, especially as they're still searching for a big bat in the middle of the lineup. J.D. Martinez and Eric Hosmer are still out there.

Dave Dombrowski: Red Sox circled back to Marlins GM Michael Hill about Giancarlo Stanton last week, at which Miami was already engaged with the Yankees. Sox believed Marlins' initial asking price last month was too high. Dombrowski denies that he told Stanton's agents that pitching was Sox's top priority.

To the best of agent Joel Wolfe's knowledge, the Red Sox didn't attempt to make a trade with the Marlins for Giancarlo Stanton. Wolfe's assumption is Sox weren't looking for an outfielder. The Sox weren't on Stanton's list of four teams to which he would've approved a trade. Giants and Cardinals weren't on that list either, but before Stanton nixed it, they worked out deals with Marlins for him.

Since GM meetings, the feeling in Giancarlo Stanton's camp was that Red Sox's priority is pitching, not outfielders. "(Andrew) Benintendi, (Mookie) Betts and JBJ, those guys are studs," said Stanton's agent, Joel Wolfe.

Joel Wolfe, Giancarlo Stanton's agent: Boston was never presented to us as an option." In other words, the Red Sox didn't work out trade with the Marlins, as the Giants and Cardinals did. The Red Sox weren't among the four teams on Stanton's go-to list (Yankees, Dodgers, Cubs, Astros).

MLB has begun investigating the domestic assault charges against Red Sox pitcher Steven Wright. The commissioner's office has independent authority to review such matters under its joint domestic violence policy. MLB suspended Aroldis Chapman for 30 games in 2016 even though criminal charges weren't filed against him. Derek Norris was banned for the final month of the 2017 season after allegations of physical and mental abuse by his ex-fiancée.

Five trades we'd love to see at the winter meetings

A star slugger to the Cardinals? A coveted young ace to the Dodgers? With baseball's winter meetings just days away, we offer a handful of deals that make sense for all sides.


Thornburg, Red Sox avoid arbitration

Right-hander Tyler Thornburg and the Boston Red Sox agreed to a $2.05 million, one-year contract that avoided arbitration and matched his 2017 salary.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

As others have reported, reliever Tyler Thornburg will make $2.05 million next year -- the same as his 2017 salary -- after avoiding salary arbitration by agreeing with the Red Sox on a one-year contract. Thornburg missed all of this past season after undergoing surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. He is expected to be ready for spring training, according to the Red Sox.

Yanks, Red Sox among teams out on Ohtani

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told reporters Sunday night that Shohei Ohtani's representatives informed the team that it will not be invited to meet with the starter/slugger face-to-face. The Red Sox are also out, along with multiple other teams.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Although the Red Sox believe Jose Abreu would fill their need for a middle-of-the-order slugger, the White Sox want "an arm and both legs," according to a rival talent evaluator. Chicago got Yoan Moncada and Michael Kopech last year for Chris Sale, and Boston now lacks that level of talent in the mid/upper levels of its farm system. Jackie Bradley Jr.? The White Sox have liked him in the past, but he's controllable through only 2020, at which time their window to contend will just be opening.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

In any conversation about trade talks for Jose Abreu, it shouldn't be overlooked how much the Red Sox wanted him four years ago when they were outbid by less than $5 million by the White Sox. It's debatable whether the Red Sox have enough top prospects left to make a strong offer for the slugging Cuban first baseman, but if any team knows Boston's system, it's the White Sox after the Chris Sale trade last year.
