Insider: One Team Has Been "Very Aggressive" In Pursuit Of Jorge Soler

The Boston Red Sox's pursuit of free-agent outfielder Jorge Soler has been characterized by a notable level of aggression.

Soler, who opted out of his contract with the Miami Marlins, became a free agent after a strong 2023 season.

He hit 36 homers and collected 75 RBIs in 137 games, showcasing his significant power-hitting capabilities​.

The Red Sox, led by chief baseball officer Craig Breslow, have been vocal about their need for a right-handed bat.

With their previous target, Teoscar Hernández, signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Red Sox's focus shifted to Soler.

MLB reporter Héctor Gómez highlighted Boston's strong interest in Soler, even suggesting that they might be the frontrunners to sign him.

However, this claim is yet to be universally acknowledged, with other sources indicating that the Red Sox are among several teams interested but not necessarily leading the race​​.

Soler's appeal to the Red Sox is clear.

He's not just a power hitter but also has a remarkable postseason resume, including being named the 2021 World Series MVP.

His potential fit at Fenway Park is particularly enticing, given the Red Sox's need for more home-run capability.

They finished 18th in the major leagues in home runs last season and are looking to bolster their lineup significantly.
