Trevor Story’s interest opens the door to Xander Bogaerts’ position change
If the Boston Red Sox subscribes to Trevor Story at the stop, Xander Bogaerts on the current short leg of the Red Sox can move to a second or third facility to accommodate the Story.
While signings seem to be defunct at the moment, teams are showing their interest in the best free agents available.
According to MLB insiders Jon Heyman, NS Boston Red Sox was one of three teams interested in signing a free shortstop agent Trevor’s story.
Heyman revealed on a December 6 podcast episode that Boston has now joined the conversation as a potential group interested in Stories.
“The story, I heard three teams – Seattle, Houston and Boston. So it will be interesting to see with Boston. Obviously he could start in second base, and we’ll see what happens from there. ”
Based on ESPN MLB writer Joon Lee October 25 report on the Red Sox, it looks like the Red Sox could meet the Story – if Xander Bogaerts leaves the shortstop, something that is clearly Bogaerts is up to.
Trevor Story can go to Red Sox, transfer Xander Bogaerts to second base
According to Lee, the short 3-time All-Star is “open to move to a second or third facility down the road.”
While sources close to BOGAERTS demonstrate he is interested in picking out his remaining contracts in 2022, the 29-year-old shortstop “hops to remain in Boston and finish his career with the Red Sox.” .”
Given their willingness to change positions and their desire to stay in Boston, it wouldn’t be unreasonable for the Red Sox to put Story at a disadvantage while keeping Bogaerts in second.
While Bogaerts is one of Boston’s top offensive players, he has had -55 defenses saved during his career in the short head position. The saga, on the other hand, has scored 9 defenses saved in the 2021 season.
If the Red Sox sign Story, it will be a dangerous combination of attack and defense for two talented midfielders.
