As the General Managers meeting kicked off today, the Red Sox delegation arrived in Orlando prepared to gain information and potentially make some deals.
Here are some of the rumors that have been going on that include the Red Sox.
1. Giancarlo Stanton to Boston
This rumor surfaced this past weekend and sparked due to a report from the Miami Herald. Dave Dombrowski is feeling out the market, but they are not listed as front runners.
The San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals appear to be in front of the Red Sox.
2. Where will JD Martinez end up?
In a story that appeared on ESPN, Jerry Crasnick polled 40 management officials around MLB about nine hot stove questions that will be making news across the game.
One question that revolved around the Red Sox is the potential for landing free agent, JD Martinez.
Out of the 40 polled, 23 picked Boston as the leader to sign Martinez.
“Boston was the runaway winner in the ESPN.com survey for multiple reasons. The Red Sox need a power bat after ranking last in the AL with 168 homers this season. GM Dave Dombrowski is in perpetual “win now” mode, and he’s familiar with Martinez after signing him as a free agent in Detroit in 2014.” – Jerry Crasnick / ESPN
3. Carlos Santana to Boston.
According to Nick Cafardo, the Red Sox are planning to meet with the representatives for free agent first baseman, Carlos Santana.
Santana is a hot name as he’s already been rumored to be meeting with Seattle as well as Boston.
