Who's in Right? Analyzing the 2012 Options for the Boston Red Sox

J.D. Drew is, God bless him, finally off the books and the Boston Red Sox have a vacancy in right field for the first time since 2006.

ESPN Boston's Jeremy Lundblad points out that Boston's right fielders finished last in the majors in batting average (.233), OBP (.299) and were only better than Seattle in slugging percentage (.353).

So there's some room for improvement. 

GM Ben Cherington is set to let Ryan Kalish and Josh Reddick compete for the stating job next spring. His preference is to add a right-handed fourth outfielder to the roster.

Addressing pitching concerns remains Boston's top priority, but the Red Sox will all but surely turn to the free-agent market to address some of their outfield needs.

Heck, they could even bring back Drew...just kidding.

Here's an analysis of Boston's options for filling the hole in right for the 2012 season.
