Impending free agents (re-sign, let go or qualifying offer)
No. 1- R.A. Dickey (1 year, 5 million)- They need an innings eater. He has pitched at least 164 innings every year this decade. Coming off a terrible year, he needs to take whatever he can get to avoid the end of his career.
No. 2- Melky Cabrera (2 years, 22 million)- He showed interest in coming back before being traded. They can put him in left, engel in center, and avi in right. Bring another clubhouse leader to the team.
No.1- Trade James Shields to the Cubs for a PTBNL- Cubs need somebody to pitch for them, and the Sox need to get rid of his salary. He's been extremely inconsistent, so for the Sox to dump him, they will get nobody back.
No.2- Trade Tyler Danish and a PTBNL to the Phillies for Kevin Siegrist- Sox need relief help, and Siegrist is a solid lefty that the Sox can benefit from
Starters- Carlos Rodon, R.A. Dickey, Reynaldo Lopez, Lucas Giolito, Carson Fulmer
Relievers- Kevin Siegrist, Juan Minaya, Nate Jones, Gregory Infante, Jace Fry, Aaron Bummer, Chris Beck
Catchers- Omar Narvaez and Kevan Smith
Infielders- Jose Abreu, Yoan Moncada, Yolmer Sanchez, Tim Anderson, Matt Davidson, Alen Hansen, Nicky Delmonico
Outfielders- Melky Cabrera, Adam Engel, Avisail Garcia, Alen Hansen, Nicky Delmonico
