Boston Reds Sox just turned to fifth place in his rotation, acquiring Andrew Kessner of Baltimore Orioles.
So what's next?
While Red Sox President of Baseball Dave Dombrovsky neither confirms nor denies whether he intends to make more moves before the deadline for trade on July 31, Boston can still use reinforcements, even with Nathan Eovaldi getting closer to the team . return from the list of victims.
ESPN's Dave Schönfil identifies a player who each team has to trade or deal with in a piece published Tuesday. He believes Red Sox must acquire pitcher Ian Kennedy from Kansas City Royals, who are obvious sellers in the dark season of 2019.
Here's what Schoenfield says:
They have already acquired Andrew Keschner, who was surprisingly effective with the horrible team of Orioles, but MIT scientists do not need to know that the team still needs more help. Kennedy was effective for Royals with 3.41
The problem is that Kennedy, who signed a five-year contract for $ 70 million. In January 2016, he earned $ 16.5 million this season and next season. Royals will have to take a significant amount of money to find a trading partner, not to mention the Red Sox, which do not have much financial flexibility given their desire to stay below $ 246 million.
