Chris Young gives the Red Sox the right-handed bat in the outfield that they needed. He is a moderately productive offensive player with 14 home runs in 318 AB’s in 2015. Young also give the Red Sox an excess of outfielders. Jon Morosi of Fox Sports thinks this mean the Red Sox are lining themselves up for a trade.
Add Chris Young to Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., Rusney Castillo and Brock Holt, and it’s obvious the Red Sox are angling for a trade.

The Red Sox are still in need of starting pitching and bullpen help.
