Boston Red Sox: 5 Potential Solutions for Right Field

The Boston Red Sox, at 45-32, may have the third best record in all of baseball, but that doesn't mean they don't still have their share of problems.

Carl Crawford and Jed Lowrie, two of the team's best hitters, are still on the disabled list. John Lackey has been a disaster as the No. 4 starter and there's a revolving door at the No. 5 spot. Bobby Jenks, signed to be a premier set-up man, is still working his way back to mediocrity.

However, all of these problems pale in comparison to what's going in right field. J.D. Drew, even when he's healthy, has been about the offensive equivalent of Pokey Reese this season. The Red Sox can't keep trotting him out if he's going to be an automatic out.

With that in mind, here's a look at five potential solutions for this year and beyond.
