    Red Sox re-signed RHP Carson Smith to a minor league contract.

    It's unclear at this time if the deal will also include an invitation to big league camp. The 29-year-old hurler elected free agency at the beginning of November rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Pawtucket, but after exploring the open market decided that his best landing spot was to remain in Boston. If he can stay healthy, he could be a viable contributor to the Red Sox' bullpen in 2019.

    Red Sox signed RHP Brian Ellington to a minor league contract.

    Ellington, 28, missed most of the 2018 season while battling biceps issues. While he was miserable in 2017, he was a useful bullpen piece for the Marlins from 2015-2016 where he posted a 2.64 ERA 1.26 WHIP and 50/29 K/BB ratio across 58 innings. He makes for a nice low-risk depth signing for the Red Sox as they continue to hunt for bullpen depth.
    Red Sox signed LHP Dan Runzler to a minor league contract.

    The 33-year-old southpaw spent the 2018 season pitching for the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League where he compiled a 2.81 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 58/27 K/BB ratio across 48 innings. He'll add minor league bullpen depth for the Red Sox.

    The Red Sox are actively discussing possible trades of catcher Sandy Leon, @MarlyRiveraESPN and I have heard from sources.

    Chris Sale and the Boston Red Sox are working toward a long-term contract extension. The Boston Globe first reported that the sides are getting close to a deal. If completed, the deal likely to be in the five-year, $150 million range, league sources tell ESPN

    Sale’s five-year, $145 million contract extension is structured with deferred payments that keep his annual average value below $26 million, which will help the Sox in their quest to avoid the competitive and financial luxury tax penalties in future years.

    Shortstop Xander Bogaerts and the Boston Red Sox are finalizing a seven-year, $132M contract extension, league sources tell ESPN.

    Final details on Xander Bogaerts' deal with Boston, which was first reported as close by @EvanDrellich, are being hammered out. It will begin this season. There will be an opt-out. Bogaerts will be locked up long-term, though, taking another big name off the market next winter.

    The Red Sox made a number of roster moves Friday, including the promotion of top prospect Michael Chavis.

    On Thursday night, the team placed Dustin Pedroia on the injured list and recalled right-hander Marcus Walden. On Friday, the team made a few more moves, including:

    -- Eduardo Núñez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a mid-back strain retroactive to April 18.

    -- Right-handed pitcher Erasmo Ramírez was designated for assignment.

    -- Infielders Tzu-Wei Lin and Chavis were recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket. Chavis will wear No. 23.

    If Chavis plays, it will be his major league debut. The infielder is the No. 1 ranked Red Sox prospect according to MLB.com. With Pedroia and Nunez on the injured list more than just Lin was needed in the infield, which is why Chavis has been promoted.

    Eovaldi will see Dr. Chris Ahmad in NYC on Monday. He is leaning toward surgery after the success he had with it last year. Feels like he can return quickly.

    Sox need to sign Dallas Keuchel. He's looking for 1 year deal. Yes it will cost a draft pick. We have no idea when he will be back. I heard 2 months. Could be longer

    It took Eovaldi 2 months last year and he felt that it was somewhat slowed down by simultaneously rehabbing from TJ. I'm guessing it'll be more like 4-6 weeks (not that I'm a doctor).

    The SP rotation is short on depth but I'm not sure that Keuchel makes sense. I certainly wouldn't want to jump past the next luxury tax level to have him as a stop gap. Velazquez has done a decent job as the 'opener' on a few BP days and has experience as a SP. I'd would be okay with continuing to stretch him out every fifth day. If he gets exposed as a SP then take a peek at Shawaryn.

    The Red Sox optioned catcher Óscar Hernández and right-hander Josh A. Smith to Triple-A Pawtucket prior to Monday afternoon’s series opener in Toronto, which cleared the way for David Price and Sandy Leon to be added back to the active roster.

    Price will make the start in the opener after spending the past two weeks on the injured list with left elbow tendinitis. Prior to that flaring up, the 33-year-old had posted a 3.75 ERA while throwing at least six innings in five of his six starts.

    Leon is returning from the paternity list following the birth of his daughter, and he’ll rejoin Christian Vázquez as the club’s catching tandem for the series in Toronto. Over 12 games this season, Leon is hitting .200 with a .627 OPS.

    The return of Leon could be good news for Chris Sale, who has been particularly sharp in games where they’re paired together. Sale owns a 2.61 ERA over five games pitching to Leon this season, but a 6.39 ERA in his five games pitching to Vazquez.

    Sale struck out 10 in Sunday's series finale against the Astros while pitching to Vazquez, with Boston picking up a 4-3 win, but he also walked five, his highest total in a Red Sox uniform.

    Hernandez did not get into a game in his brief stint with the Red Sox, leaving his most recent MLB experience as a 2016 cameo with the D-backs. Smith, on the other hand, has made four appearances this season, with a 4.91 ERA and six strikeouts over 7 1/3 innings.
