Red Sox's Matthew Lugo: Gets invite to MLB camp
Lugo received an invitation to major-league spring training Wednesday.
Lugo isn't in the running for an Opening Day roster spot, but he can use this opportunity to showcase his skills to the big-league staff. Selected in the second round of the 2019 MLB Draft out of a high school in Puerto Rico, the 21-year-old infield prospect put up an .830 OPS with 18 home runs and 20 stolen bases in 117 games last season between High-A Greenville and Double-A Portland. There's a good amount of long-term fantasy upside in his skill set.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Sterling Sharp: Inks MiLB deal with Boston
Sharp re-signed with the Red Sox on a minor-league contract Jan. 4.
After being released from the Nationals last August, Sharp caught on with the Red Sox on a minor-league deal to close out the 2022 campaign. The 27-year-old right-hander -- whose lone MLB action came with the Marlins in 2020 -- pitched exclusively at Double-A Portland during his time in the Boston organization, logging a 3.18 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 31:12 K:BB in 34 innings....

Red Sox's Franklin German: Designated for assignment
German was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Monday.
It clears room on the 40-man roster for Richard Bleier after Bleier was acquired from Miami in the Matt Barnes trade. The right-hander allowed eight runs in four appearances with Boston in the 2022 campaign with a 4:4 K:BB over his four innings of work, but did pitch well with Triple-A Worcester in the second half of the season. There could be interest in German on the waiver wire.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Richard Bleier: Heads to Boston
The Red Sox acquired Bleier from the Marlins on Monday in exchange for Matt Barnes and cash, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Bleier made 55 appearances for the Marlins in 2022 and turned in a 3.55 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 32:10 K:BB over 50.2 innings. With Boston recently dealing away Josh Taylor, the addition of Bleier gives the Red Sox a much-needed lefty arm in the bullpen. Bleier could be a factor in the middle innings or as a setup man for the Red Sox in 2023, but he's unlikely to see many save opportunities.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Adam Duvall: Good to go for spring
Duvall (wrist) said Tuesday at his introductory press conference with the Red Sox that he'll be "full go" for spring training, Gabrielle Star of the Boston Herald reports.
Duvall, who joined the Red Sox on a one-year, $7 million deal, didn't see any action for Atlanta after July 23 of last year due to a left wrist injury that ultimately required season-ending surgery. Fortunately for Duvall, the surgery was to his non-dominant wrist, which offers hope that he might bounce back in the power department after he saw a 75-point drop in his isolated slugging from 2021 before opting for the season-ending surgery. The Red Sox are planning to install Duvall as their primary center fielder in 2023, and given that the 34-year-old has spent most of his career as a corner outfielder, showing up to spring training at full health should give him ample time to adapt well to the position change....

Red Sox's Matt Dermody: Gets NRI deal from Red Sox
Dermody agreed Tuesday with the Red Sox on a minor-league deal which includes an invitation to spring training, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Dermody has made 30 MLB appearances over his career with the Blue Jays and Cubs. The left-hander spent the end of 2022 with the NC Dinos of the Korea Baseball Organization and registered a 4.54 ERA over 39.2 innings spanning eight starts with the club. He faces long odds on making the Red Sox roster out of the Grapefruit League.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Moved off 40-man roster
Barnes was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
This is the corresponding 40-man roster move for Boston's completion of a free-agent agreement with Adam Duvall. Barnes is due $8.375 million in 2023 and carries a $2.25 million buyout on his $8 million club option for 2024, but he gets the boot after struggling to a 4.31 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 34:21 K:BB over 39.2 innings last season. Because of the money owed, Barnes will almost certainly pass through waivers unclaimed. He figures to then move on to another team. Kenley Jansen is the heavy favorite for saves in the Red Sox bullpen leading into the 2023 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Adalberto Mondesi: Acquired by Red Sox
The Red Sox acquired Mondesi (knee) along with a player to be named later from the Royals on Tuesday in exchange for Josh Taylor, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom said Enrique Hernandez remains the likely starter at shortstop, per Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican, and Mondesi should be in the mix for playing time at both shortstop and second base. However, Mondesi isn't fully recovered from the ACL surgery he underwent last May and isn't guaranteed to be ready for Opening Day, according to Ian Browne of MLB.com. Injuries have obviously been the 27-year-old's big bugaboo, but this looks like a small price to pay for the Red Sox for a player with some upside. Mondesi will make $3.05 million in 2023 and is slated to hit free agency next winter.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Ryan Sherriff: Finds work with Boston
Sherriff announced Saturday via his personal Twitter account that he agreed to a minor-league contract with the Red Sox.
After making 16 appearances in the majors with the Rays in 2021, Sherriff pitched exclusively in the minors in 2022 as a member of the Phillies organization. The 32-year-old lefty saw the bulk of his action at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, logging a 3.18 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 12:6 K:BB in 11.1 innings. Sherriff may get the opportunity to audition for a spot in Boston's big-league bullpen during spring training, but he'll most likely be assigned to Triple-A Worcester before camp breaks....

Red Sox's Trevor Story: Expects to play in 2023
Story (elbow) believes he will be able to play in 2023, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Story underwent an internal bracing procedure on the UCL in his right elbow in the middle of January. The infielder is expected to miss at least 4-6 months while he recovers from the procedure, but that timeline does give him an opportunity to return at some point this summer. While Story is out, it appears that Enrique Hernandez will see the majority of his playing time at shortstop, but the Red Sox have made it known they are looking for additional help in the middle of their infield....

Red Sox's Tanner Houck: On track for start of season
Houck (back) is throwing off the mound, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
Houck is working his way back from a lumbar discectomy that sidelined the right-hander at the end of last season. He's been the subject of trade rumors, but for now is being prepped to compete for a spot in the Red Sox rotation.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Garrett Whitlock: On track for return
Whitlock (hip) has begun throwing off the mound, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
Whitlock is recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right hip. Red Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters that his recovery is on schedule, and the right-hander is expected to open the season as a member of the Boston rotation.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Chris Sale: Throwing off mound
Sale (wrist) has begun throwing off the mound, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
Sale broke his wrist in a bicycling accident in August, and he was limited to just two appearances in the 2022 season. The left-hander has dealt with injuries over the few years, but if healthy, still offers the potential to miss bats when on the mound.... See More ... See Less
