Insider Details on Boston’s Interest in Seasoned Pitching Veteran



Last week, Luis Severino left the New York Yankees and inked a one-year deal with the crosstown New York Mets. However, it appears that the Mets were not the sole rivals of the Bronx Bombers vying for the veteran right-hander.

According to The Athletic’s Jen McCaffrey, the Boston Red Sox also explored the possibility of acquiring Severino. McCaffrey noted that the Red Sox conducted a video conference with the 29-year-old, although they did not advance to the stage of negotiating a deal.

Severino ultimately signed a one-year contract worth $13 million with the Mets.

Craig Breslow, the chief baseball officer for the Red Sox, has affirmed Boston’s intention to bolster their pitching, particularly the starting rotation, in the ongoing offseason. On Tuesday night, the Red Sox executed a trade that brought in three pitchers in exchange for outfielder Alex Verdugo.

The organization’s interest in Severino, who played in 19 games in each of the last two seasons due to injuries, suggests that Boston is exploring various avenues to enhance their pitching staff, as outlined by McCaffrey.
