Free agent outfielder Bobby Kielty thinks he'll be back in Boston, as long as Coco Crisp isn't sitting on the bench next to him:
"I really need to play in the best situation," Kielty said. "With Coco not there, it is a very good situation for me in terms of playing time. . . . But with Coco there, it's not an ideal situation for me."
Since there aren't many other options out there, Kielty wouldn't be a bad option for a fourth outfielder. Brandon Moss will get a long look in the spring, though.
There seems to be a lot of interest in stagnant Matt Clement. According to Rotoworld, there are six teams that have spoken with his agent.
I could definitely see Clement going back to the National League, playing for a team like the Padres, D-Backs or Rockies. It'll be interesting to see how his contract plays out. I assume whoever snags him will be the team that offers the best incentive-based contract.
I think Clement could be really good if his rehab is on track. I really wanted to see him pitch for the Sox in September but, unfortunately, it all didn't come together quite right.
