The MLB non-waiver trade deadline come and went Friday without any blockbuster deals involving the Boston Red Sox.
The Red Sox did acquire right-handed pitcher Ryan Cook in a trade with the Oakland Athletics, but that was the only deal.
Now it’s the team’s task to finish out the regular season and see what type of talent it has.
“Just had a chance to talk with them as a group as the deadline is now expired,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said on “Friday Night Fenway” before the game against the Tampa Bay Rays. “There’s 59 games remaining for us. We still have an obligation to our fans, we have an obligation to one another. And the talent in that room has to continue to be focused and be prepared each and every night.
“We’re at the point now where we are gathering information for the players that will be here next year going forward, and how we need to support and add to that group to put a team on the field that certainly reverses the standings as they are today.”
