MLB Rumors: Red Sox Listening To Calls On Alex Verdugo

The Boston Red Sox, with Craig Breslow as their new Chief Baseball Officer, have made it clear that they are actively entertaining trade inquiries regarding outfielder Alex Verdugo.

While there's no immediate trade deal on the horizon, the organization's openness to discussing potential moves involving Verdugo underscores their willingness to explore roster adjustments this offseason.

Verdugo, a 27-year-old outfielder, has become a prominent trade candidate for several compelling reasons.

This past season, Verdugo slashed .264/.324/.421, with 13 home runs, 54 RBIs, five stolen bases, and 81 runs scored across 142 games played.

With just one year of club control remaining and prior interest from other teams, the Red Sox find themselves in a position where they could capitalize on his value in the trade market.

Despite his offensive fluctuations during the 2023 season, Verdugo's solid contributions at the plate and his impressive defensive performance in right field have caught the attention of potential trade partners.

As the offseason unfolds, it will be intriguing to see if any specific trade discussions materialize, shaping the future of Alex Verdugo in a Red Sox uniform.
