Joe Kelly clearly is popular in the Boston Red Sox clubhouse.
The hard-throwing right-hander is a free agent and reportedly is drawing massive interest around Major League Baseball. And if and when the Red Sox decide to move on from Kelly, they likely will face significant resistance from their players.
Check out this report from The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal:
Tuesday was a big rumor day for the Red Sox.
Dave Dombrowski and Co. reportedly are in on high-profile relievers David Roberston and Adam Ottavino, among others. Oh, and it looks like Rick Porcello and Jackie Bradley Jr. are on the trading block.
So much for getting complacent after winning the World Series.
