Matt Guerrier May Be Best Option for Red Sox As AL East Bullpen Race Heats Up

The Red Sox are not the only franchise that needs to bulk up the bullpen during the offseason. Their top competition in the AL East, Tampa Bay and New York, are also looking to grab relievers off the market.

According to NESN Insider Peter Gammons, Boston’s best option for a free-agent reliever is Twins’ righty Matt Guerrier. Gammons went on to report that the Red Sox may have lost interest in acquiring Jesse Crain and Brian Fuentes.

The Red Sox have cast a wide net for their reliever search this season, and will continue to build while keeping an eye on their competition’s pursuits.
