The Sox chose not to tender 2020 contracts to infielder Marco Hernandez and lefty reliever Josh Osich. The club will tender 2020 contracts to all 27 remaining unsigned players on their Major League roster, including Jackie Bradley Jr ., who was loosely rumored as a non- tender candidate.

Despite some recent speculation that the Red Sox could non-tender Jackie Bradley Jr. prior to tonight’s 8pm ET deadline, the organization will tender him a contract for the 2020 season, Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports (Twitter link).

The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal suggested Sunday night that a non-tender of Bradley could be possible (subscription required), pointing out that the $11M that MLBTR contributor Matt Swartz projects Bradley to earn in his final season of club control may be steeper than the team prefers. But Bradley’s strong defensive track record, extra-base pop and speed are seemingly enough that the Boston organization feels he’ll at least be valued at that rate elsewhere. The dearth of useful center fielders in free agency certainly makes that likely.

The Red Sox need rotation help. Here’s a few ways they could go

  The Red Sox need rotation help. Here’s a few ways they could go Employing a Tampa Bay-style opener might make a lot of sense for the Red Sox and not just because Chaim Bloom came over from the Rays. Using an opener is not the same as having a bullpen day. The idea is to use a reliever to start the game and get 3-6 outs before having a second pitcher come in and work 3-5 innings. The Rays used that format to help develop their pitching prospects while at the same time remaining competitive.

BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox have tendered outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr . a contract for the 2020 season, preserving their rights to him. The Red Sox did not tender contracts to infielder Marco Hernández or left-hander Josh Osich, making them free agents. The Bradley decision was closely

The Sox chose not to tender 2020 contracts to infielder Marco Hernandez and lefty reliever Josh Osich. The club will tender 2020 contracts to all 27 remaining unsigned players on their Major League roster, including Jackie Bradley Jr ., who was loosely rumored as a non- tender candidate.

It stands to reason that Bradley is still a candidate to change hands between now and Opening Day 2020. Boston’s payroll is already in the $230M neighborhood (including arbitration projections and pre-arbitration salaries to round out the roster), and there are notable holes to address on the roster. Moving Bradley would be the second of what could be several moves designed to scale back on the 2020 payroll; the Red Sox also traded catcher Sandy Leon to the Indians earlier this morning, shedding a projected $2.8M salary in the process.

The 29-year-old Bradley hit .225/.317/.421 with 21 long balls, 28 doubles and three triples in 567 plate appearances with the Sox this past season. However, he hasn’t had an above-average year at the plate (by measure of OPS+ or wRC+) since his All-Star 2016 season, and his typically brilliant defensive ratings slid in 2019 as well. Bradley drew ratings of -1 Defensive Runs Saved and a -1.2 Ultimate Zone Rating, although Statcast’s Outs Above Average still pegged him as a quality defender (+6). The 2018 Gold Glover has long been considered to be one of the game’s better defensive outfielders.

With struggles at net, Florida Panthers demote backup Sam Montembeault

  With struggles at net, Florida Panthers demote backup Sam Montembeault The Panthers may not be able to bench their high-priced free agent, but they could change his backup.On many levels, that plan has not worked out for Florida and now changes are being made. The team announced that Montembeault has been reassigned to the AHL’s Springfield Thunderbirds with Chris Driedger getting the call as his replacement. Yet, the issues in net truly stem from the keeper not involved in this transaction: Sergei Bobrovsky. After inking a seven-year, $70M contract this off-season, the Panthers $10M man has been nothing but a massive disappointment. Bobrovksy is in the midst of the worst season of his career – and it’s not particularly close. He holds an .

The Boston Red Sox will reportedly tender a 2020 contract to outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr . ahead of Monday's 8 p.m. deadline for teams to decide whether players will be considered non- tendered and become free agents. Bradley Jr . is expected to make about in the final year of arbitration.

Looking around the league, several teams (Cubs, Mets, D-backs, Braves, Phillies, Reds, White Sox) could be in the market for a short-term addition in center field. The D-backs, in particular, seem like a plausible fit given the presence of former Boston execs Mike Hazen, Amiel Sawdaye and Jared Porter in the front office and given the team’s history of acquiring former Red Sox players (Clay Buchholz, Blake Swihart, Robby Scott, Deven Marrero, Henry Owens). Arizona “would have interest” in acquiring Bradley, Rosenthal wrote  night, which would allow them to play Ketel Marte at second base rather than in center field.
