How should the Red Sox approach the unique 2020 MLB trade deadline? Our John Tomase has one obvious move in mind with a familiar front office face.
For the first week of the season Chaim Bloom was extremely busy as he was churning through new pitchers being added to the roster that he found either unsigned or on waivers. That process slowed down for about a week, but the team has made another move on Friday. Prior to the start of their series against the Blue Jays, Boston signed right-handed pitcher Seth Blair and added him to the 60-man player pool, assigning him to the alternate site in Pawtucket.
He also hasn’t recorded his first strikeout of the year while walking seven. Roark has been a roughly league average starter the last few seasons and was brought in to fortify the Blue Jays’ rotation so the young bats wouldn’t have to score 10 runs a game to keep the team competitive. Roark has only made one start this season, but it was a pretty good one.
