Cora told reporters Wednesday that the team is continuing to have conversations with its unvaccinated players who are unable to travel to Toronto this week for the series against the Blue Jays. "I do believe when we come into September, it's going to be different.... It's going to change from our end, leave it at that," Cora said of his unvaccinated players' statuses, according to Alex Speier of The Boston Globe. Canada's current COVID-19 rules require those who are...

    ESPN's Buster Olney last week stirred the pot when he mentioned the Boston Red Sox as a potential suitor for Aaron Judge should the slugger leave the New York Yankees in free agency this offseason.
    On Tuesday, another MLB insider followed suit.
    Jon Heyman, writing for the New York Post, listed several teams that theoretically could target Judge on the open market, calling them “the likeliest of suspects” if the Yankees ultimately are unwilling to meet the All-Star outfielder's asking price.
    Boston was the second team Heyman listed, behind the San Francisco Giants and...

    Garrett Whitlock thrived out of the bullpen for the Boston Red Sox this season before being moved to the rotation, but could he be used as a reliever going forward?
