    Redsox 2018-2019 Transactions

    Like I did last year. Keep the other forum from flooding. Please make sure when posting to make sure it's a verified account. It will have a blue circle with a check mark. And to post who the source is. Thank You.

    Price will not opt out of his current deal with the Red Sox, which will keep him under contract through the 2022 season.

    Red Sox third baseman Eduardo Nunez exercised his player option and will return to the team in 2019, according to the president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski.

    Nunez will make $5 million in 2019 after earning the same amount this year. Boston would have owed him a $2 million buyout if he had declined.

    Second baseman Dustin Pedroia, Infielder Marco Hernandez, and right-handed pitcher Austin Maddox were reinstated from the 60-day disabled list.
    • Right-handed pitcher Carson Smith was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list and outrighted from the Major League roster. He was elected free agency
    • Additionally, Infielder Tony Renda and right-handed pitcher Justin Haley were outrighted from the Major League Roster

    Nothing on Tyler Thornburg. Smith was a headcase.

    Smith sealed his fate with his comments essentially indicting the team for his injury. He deserves to go. Even if he thought that that were the case, he should have talked it out internally first.

    This may mean that they hope to see Thornburg rebound in 2019. There is, however, a chance that they non-tender him later in November. They have something like 3 weeks to make that decision. For now, they needed three roster spots for the guys they know are going off the 60-day DL and they easily displace three guys who don't belong with the club.

    Red Sox extended a one-year, $17.9 million qualifying offer to RHP Craig Kimbrel.

    Kimbrel will reject the offer and become a free agent. His contract this offseason could rival the three-year, $52 million deal signed last winter by Wade Davis, which is the biggest ever for a reliever.

    I dunno. I think we will re-sign him. Maybe same as what Davis got.

    Seems doubtful. As I posted in the offseason thread, the cost of keeping the team together with anticipated club-controlled and arbitration raises and without the FAs, already exceeds the luxury tax threshold. That means a Kimbrel deal on the order of what Davis got will cost $25M/yr in real dollars after the luxury tax kicks in. Is it really worth $25M/yr for 3 outs every third game?

    Also, if you read carefully what DD said after the WS, he's already prepping for life without Kimbrel. He's said it carefully, but it's hard not to see him laying the groundwork for his departure. (Posting it in the offseason thread).

    I was reading through an article on potential reliever signings that I agreed with.

    1) Andrew Miller
    2) Kelvin Herrera
    3) Adam Ottavino
    4) Tony Sipp

    I agreed with all of these names. Really like the thought of Sipp as a LHP and Herrera as a closer. I don't see Kimbrel re-signing BUT i do see Durbin Feltman being on the active roster next year.

    Thoughts?

    If anyone is interested in reading full article, I'll attach it. It included contract information and other helpful details

    Red Sox signed C Juan Centeno to a minor league contract.

    Centeno appeared in just 10 games at the major league level in 2018, batting .162/.184/.270 over 38 plate appearances with the Rangers. The 28-year-old will be nothing more than minor league catching depth for the Red Sox.

    Dan Butler has retired from baseball and taken a job as the Diamondbacks' new bullpen catcher.

    Butler, 32, was in the majors briefly with the Red Sox in 2014 and 2018, so he got a World Series ring this season. He was 5-for-25 at the plate in the big leagues.

    The Red Sox have agreed to bring back infielder Tony Renda on a minor-league deal, a source confirmed Friday.

    Renda made one appearance for the Sox in 2018, entering as a pinch runner and scoring the game-winning run in Boston's 5-4 victory over the Yankees on Aug. 5. That game was one of the Sox' most memorable all season, as the win on Sunday Night Baseball clinched a four-game sweep of the Yankees and all but sealed the division.

    Renda performed well offensively in the minors, hitting .318/.373/.453 with five homers in 69 games for Portland and Pawtucket. A former second-round pick of the Nationals, Renda appeared in 32 big-league games for the Reds in 2016.

    Reds claimed LHP Robby Scott off waivers from the Red Sox.

    Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic previously reported that Scott was on his way to the Red Sox, but it turns out that it's a straight waiver claim. The 29-year-old southpaw struggled with an 8.10 ERA in nine appearances with the Red Sox in 2018, but he posted a 1.86 ERA over 45 appearances and had a good year in the majors in 2017. He's a decent enough flier for Cincinnati's bullpen.

    Red Sox signed OF Gorkys Hernandez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

    The deal will come with a $1 million salary if Hernandez is in the big leagues, according to Alex Speier of the Boston Globe. Hernandez was non-tendered by the Giants last month after batting just .234/.285/.391 over 451 plate appearances in 2018. The 31-year-old can play all three outfield spots and has flashed some pop against left-handed pitching, but he's nothing more than a depth piece for the defending World Series champions.
