Multiple reports now indicate that the Red Sox are 'heavy' in on their pursuit of free-agent bullpen piece David Robertson. The 33-year-old Robertson had a solid 2018 with The Bronx Embalmers—posting a 3.23 ERA, and giving up just 46 hits in 69.2 innings of work. He also struck out 91 opposing batters. With Craig Kimbrel's 5-6 year contract demands, it appears more and more likely that Boston will turn to alternatives like Robertson and/or former Northeastern University Husky Adam Ottavino. Said Pinstriped Poser GM Brain Cashman, "I don’t know what our competitors are willing to do whether it is a trade or free agency. I have legitimate offers out for various trade partners and or free agents. We haven’t agreed do to anything yet." Stay tuned, the reliever market could break soon—even during the Winter Meetings this week in Las Vegas.
