It’s a curious move in isolation, since the Red Sox just started selling – Christian Vazquez to the Astros – but I suspect there is more coming. Maybe the Red Sox are about to trade JD Martinez, and Pham is gonna take some of those remaining at bats? Pham has been a below-average hitter this year, though, so who knows if he’d even help keep the Red Sox afloat.
More coming. I think a lot is shaking loose right now.
