The grass is not always greener on the other side. Which three Boston Red Sox from last year’s roster have troubles in 2022?

When it comes to them Boston Red SoxFew would have predicted that Alex Cora’s squad would have made it to the American League Championship Series in 2021. But Boston defied the odds, falling just short of eventual AL champion Houston Astros.

With success comes expectations, and the Red Sox certainly have high goals in 2022. Boston has brought back the majority of its team as of 2021 and currently sits behind the New York Yankees in the AL East. But the Red Sox retain the top spot in the wild card race.

While the Boston Red Sox are thriving in 2022, some of their former teammates aren’t so lucky. Which three Red Sox from last year’s team are struggling this season?

3. Former Red Sox infielder Taylor Motter is struggling in 2022.

One former Red Sox player who hasn’t had much success in 2022 is Taylor Motter. The infielder has been involved with various organizations over the years. Motter played for the Tampa Bay Rays, Minnesota Twins and Colorado Rockies and joined Boston late last season.

Motter played for Colorado’s Triple-A affiliate last season, smashing 24 roundtrippers and hitting .335 for Triple-A Albuquerque. His success with the Minors led to a major league call-up in August, but after playing 13 games for the Rockies, mostly as a utility infielder, Motter hit just .150 and was marked for action.

Boston picked up the infielder and almost immediately added him to their active roster. Motter actually played pretty well in his first three games, going 2-on-6 with a double and a triple. But it wasn’t to be like the Red Sox DFA Motter and he went straight to Triple-A.

Taylor Motter was selected to free agency last offseason and ended up with the Cincinnati Reds. Motter was promoted to the bigs in May to help offset the team’s losses during his road trip to Toronto, but was quickly sent back to Triple-A Louisville. The 32-year-old seems destined to spend this season with the minors.
