Red Sox Have Hoping to Land Star Pitcher this Offseason According to Insider

Will the Boston Red Sox be able to make a major splash this offseason?

Boston has won just 78 games in each of the last two seasons and now has former reliever Craig Breslow leading the club as the chief baseball officer. Boston let former chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom go before the end of the 2023 season and now needs to go back to the drawing board.

 

 

The Red Sox’s biggest roster need certainly is in the starting rotation. Boston’s rotation is the biggest reason for the club’s struggles last season but at this point, it sounds like a move could be on the way.

Boston reportedly has a “slight edge” in signing former Texas Rangers hurler Jordan Montgomery, according to USA Today Sports’ Bob Nightengale.

“The Red Sox may have a slight edge in signing free agent Jordan Montgomery, who moved to Boston this winter where his wife started a dermatology residency at a local hospital,” Nightengale said.

 

 

Montgomery has been mentioned as a fit for the Red Sox on numerous occasions at this point. Boston still is tied to Orix Buffaloes star Yoshinobu Yamamoto, but if the Red Sox miss out on him then Montgomery would be a perfect way to improve the rotation.

He is just 30 years old and has logged an ERA under 4.00 in each of the last three seasons. Plus, he has plenty of experience in the American League East after spending the first five-plus seasons of his career with the New York Yankees.

With each passing day, it’s seeming more and more likely that Montgomery could be pitching at Fenway Park in 2024.
