These three Boston Red Sox free agents will not be returning for the 2023 season.

if Boston Red Sox Fans are eager for change, they’ll see a lot of it through free agencies next year. The team has quite a lot of people who are eligible for free agency this winter. In a year where heads should be rolling, it’s clear some big changes need to be made.

Boston managed to trade some of its outstanding free agents at the close, so not quite as many as at the start of the year. The team still retained a few other notable players with expiring contracts. Many of them will be gone.

What about those with opt-outs or mutual options? Could you go somewhere else? As it currently stands, it’s these three Red Sox players we should expect to end up in free agency elsewhere.

1) Red Sox are wasting their time with another season of JD Martinez

JD Martinez has been a very solid member of the Red Sox roster for a number of years. However, as age catches up and his power numbers drop, it’s difficult to see him as a fit for the team moving forward. Although he was still a very prolific batsman and even an All-Star every season this season as a member of the club, with the exception of 2020 when there was no Midsummer Classic, he will be fondly remembered.

Health concerns for Martinez this year should prompt the Red Sox to consider a move at the DH spot. Likely relegated there for the rest of his career, it’s rarely a good idea to have a player you can’t put on defense at any point.

The decision to sign Martinez ahead of the 2018 season paid off immediately with a World Series win for Boston in his freshman year. Now, a few seasons later and he’s looking a lot busier, it’s time to move on.
