MLB Trade Rumors: Red Sox Linked To Former All-Star Following Casas Injury

Following Triston Casas' recent injury, the Boston Red Sox are actively seeking reinforcements, with C.J. Cron emerging as a prominent name in discussions, according to Zachary Rotman.

Casas' absence has heightened the urgency for the Red Sox to solidify their first base position, leading to increased speculation surrounding Cron.

Despite being released by the team during spring training, Cron's track record of power hitting and experience at first base make him an attractive option for Boston as they aim to maintain their competitive edge in the league.

Cron was an All-Star in the 2022 season with the Colorado Rockies, recording a .257/.315/.468 triple-slash line, with 29 home runs, 102 RBI, and 79 runs scored over 150 games played.

Cron's proven ability to deliver consistent offensive performance has made him a viable option of the Red Sox's search for a replacement for Casas.

With the team evaluating internal options initially, the spotlight has now shifted to Cron as a potential solution to fill the void left by Casas' injury. His offensive prowess and defensive capabilities could provide a significant boost to Boston's lineup and infield defense, offering stability during Casas' absence.

Over the past six seasons, the 34-year-old has posted a .258/.327/.484 triple-slash line, with 128 home runs, 391 RBI, and 315 runs scored across 641 games played. Photo Credit: Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports
