Boston Red Sox Free Agency: Updated Targets and Rumors

The upcoming months are as important as ever for the Boston Red Sox, and it all starts with free agency.

Boston will have a ton of open payroll going into the 2013 season, especially after the August trade that sent the massive contracts of Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford to the Los Angeles Dodgers. It also won’t have the burden of Daisuke Matsuzaka any longer.

The Red Sox will only have around $45 million committed next season, according to Cot’s Contracts, but that doesn’t include money that could go to David Ortiz, Cody Ross or an extension candidate such as Jacoby Ellsbury or Clay Buchholz.

Seeking free agents—and more importantly, the right free agents—is one of the biggest things on general manager’s plate going into next year, along with potentially finding himself a new manager, but let’s not worry about that for now.

Here’s a look at who the Red Sox will be targeting going into the offseason and whether it’s likely they sign in Boston or elsewhere.
