Reporter Yoon-Jun Ko = The Boston Red Sox, who advanced to the wild card while climbing to second place in the Eastern District of the American League in the 2021 season, fell back to the bottom of the earth after two years. As a result, many players were recruited and a twist was attempted, but the evaluation was cold.
On the 6th (Korean time), the US’The Score’ published an article titled’Prediction by AL Team for the 2023 Season’. Here, Boston was expected to stay at the bottom once again. 토토
Boston has been busy this offseason. Corey Kluber – 1 year, $10 million, Masataka Yoshida – 5 years, $90 million, Chris Martin – 2 years, $17.5 million, Kenley Jansen – 2 years, $32 million, Joely Rodriguez – 1 year, $2 million, and many more. has signed
In addition, he signed an 11-year, $331 million mega contract with Rafael Devers, who leads the cleanup lineup, and remained in Boston virtually until the end of his career.
However, Zander Bogaerts, JD Martinez, Nathan Eboldi, Matt Strahm, and others have all been missed, and Michael Waka has left the team as a free agent. The first baseman, who was evaluated as a weakness, was also not reinforced. Rather, the depth decreased when Eric Hosmer was sent out.
‘The Score’ said, “We bought a lot of players, but there will be no change in the district rankings. The lineup and rotation are still uncertain and difficult to predict.” In the rotation, Chris Sale and Kluber are at high risk of injury, and the newly recruited Yoshida has yet to show anything in the major leagues.
Of course, it’s not easy to get all the pre-season predictions right. Boston wants to trade back-up first baseman Bobby Dalbec and others, and the free agent market is still looking at it. Attention is focusing on how he will show up for the rest of the offseason to start the season.
