    Red Sox bring back LHP Martin Perez

    The Red Sox are bringing back Martin Perez after all. After declining the left-hander's club option in November, the Red Sox and Perez agreed to a one-year contract for the 2021 season with a club option for 2022, a source confirmed to the Herald. According to multiple reports, Perez will earn $4.5 million in 2021 with a $6 million option for 2022 and a $500,000 buyout.

    Cora: Red Sox pitching staff 'intriguing'

    Yesterday we add Martin and you start looking around: Eduardo (Rodriguez), Eovaldi, (Nick) Pivetta, Martin, Andriese. We’ve got (Tanner) Houck. So little by little, we’re building this puzzle.

    OTM Mailbag 1/17: Is it really selling low?

    This would make sense if the Red Sox had enough outfield depth to make it work, but they really don’t. If you did send Benintendi (and Chavis) down to start the year, then you’re left with maybe a center field addition alongside Hunter Renfroe in left and Alex Verdugo in right on an everyday basis, with maybe Yairo Muñoz or Marcus Wilson as the fourth outfielder, along with J.D. Martinez. That’s just not good enough, and you’d rather give Benintendi the chance to prove himself in the majors.
