With the Boston Red Sox losing ground in a possible Giancarlo Stanton it appears it's time to look elsewhere for a big bat and Jackie Bradley Jr. could be the key.
According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, several teams are interested the young outfielder. Especially the Chicago White Sox, Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants.
The White Sox made it known in the past few days that they are willing to trade their only "big name" remaining on their roster, José Abreu.
Abreu would slide in perfectly with the Red Sox as a power hitting first basemen that could take advantage of the Green Monster at Fenway Park.
The Cuban slugger finished the season batting for .304 with 33 homers and 102 runs batted in, that on one of the worse teams in the big leagues and little protection in the lineup.
Chicago has previously shown interest in JBJ, during Chris Sale talks, but after coming of a solid 2016 the Red Sox were hesitant to let him go.
Fast forward a year and a big drop in production by the center fielder has Boston rethinking the possibility of letting go there sure-handed center fielder and sliding Andrew Benintendi in that role.
On the other part, the Royals still seem to be a wanting to bring back Lorenzo Cain as a "plan A", and it appears "plan B" is most definitely Bradley Jr.
