Good morning and welcome back to another episode of “The Red Seat” podcast! On today’s show Jake rejoins the podcast after a multi-week hiatus and gets you caught up on the latest roster moves including:
- The promotions of Jarren Duran, Tanner Houck, and Franchy Cordero
- An array of players hitting the IL
- The Red Sox 2021 draft class
Jake and Keaton then get you caught up on what all of these moves mean and where this leaves the greatest needs on the roster heading into Friday’s trade deadline. Do the Red Sox need to make a move? If so which is their biggest area of need and why? Jake and Keaton disagree on what the team’s biggest need is.
The bulk of the show is spent breaking down players who may be both available and fill a need on this Red Sox team. They spend the majority of the time breaking down first basemen, relief pitchers, and lastly starting pitchers.
The guys also check in on Chris Sale’s progress rehabbing his way back to the team and what his addition might mean to the team down the stretch. How much can a healthy Chris Sale impact the playoff race? Will he be able to go deep enough into games to make an impact? Who gets squeezed out of the rotation when he comes back?
Lastly, we answered a bunch of your listener questions before ending the show.
