Ben Cherington Thinks Chris Carpenter Adds Value to Red Sox, Says Team Has Long Scouted Him

2,551

Ben Cherington and the Red Sox have finally received some compensation for Theo Epstein's offseason departure. The Cubs sent right-handed flamethrower Chris Carpenter to the Red Sox in exchange for Chicago's new front-office executive.

The compensation package isn't quite finished yet, as a few players to be named later are still to be exchanged. But Cherington said that the Sox have scouted Carpenter since his college days and see a lot of potential in the reliever.

See Cherington's comments, as well as Peter Gammons' analysis on the compensation for Epstein, in the video above.
