REPORT: Robertson And Ottavino Are Bullpen Options For The Red Sox

David Robertson and Adam Ottavino are reportedly the top two relief targets of Dave Dombrowski and the Red Sox. Ottavino is a former Northeastern University Husky, and holds that school's career and single season records for strikeouts. Last year for the Rockies, he posted a 2.43 ERA in 77.2 innings of work. Robertson had a 3.23 ERA across 69.2 innings for The Evil Ones in 2018. Of course, if they could responsibly re-sign Craig Kimbrel and Joe Kelly, that would be the preferred route—but that seems less and less likely for both. Stay tuned!
