The departure of Xander Bogaerts has deservedly overshadowed much of what the Red Sox have done to bolster the roster, so let’s celebrate that Kenley Jansen is now a full-time member of the squad. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe)

Jansen needed a roster spot though and Hoy Park had one, so the Red Sox designated Park for assignment. Good thing they didn’t, I don’t know, trade for Park recently or anything. Wait, I’m being told they did. (Adam London; NESN)

But now back to the Bogaerts fallout. I wrote last week about how the Red Sox can’t do the same thing to Rafael Devers, but, unfortunately, that doesn’t mean they won’t. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

To his credit, Chaim Bloom has not shied away from discussing the Bogaerts situation and all that led up to the All-Star shortstop’s departure. (Ryan Gilbert; WEEI/Audacy)

Old pal Christian Vázquez has found a new home in the Twin Cities. At least he’ll be rocking navy blue and red again. I just couldn’t get used to him in the Astros duds. (Matt Vautour; MassLive)
