MLB Rumors: Latest news, updates, trades from 2018 Winter Meetings Day 2


The baseball world has descended on Las Vegas. But which teams are willing to gamble?

Tuesday marks Day 2 of the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings, which traditionally is when the offseason picks up with free agent signings and blockbuster trades.

The Red Sox likely won't be in the center of the action this winter, but there's still reason for Boston fans to pay attention. Ex-Sox closer Craig Kimbrel could set the market for relievers in free agency, and there's a good chance Boston president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski pursues one of the remaining bullpen options after Kimbrel signs.

Catcher also is an area of intrigue for the defending World Series champions, who will be paying close attention to the activity of American League rivals like the New York Yankees and Houston Astros.
