With the 2019 Trade deadline approaching July 31st, the club has several issues to consider. Struggling in third place for most of the season the most significant need is in the bullpen. With no proven closer, Boston does not have an abundance of prospects to offer. In this post, we will explore three possible trade scenarios for the 2018 World Champions to explore. Trade Eduardo Nunez Trade chip number one trade Eduardo Nunez. Nunez was acquired two years ago from San Fransisco at the trade deadline. Nunez is having a productive 2019 hitting 2home runs and 18 rbi’s and hitting An experienced veteran Nunez would be a plus on any team. Nunez brings versatility and is an asset in the locker room. With Marco Hernandez and Brock Holt, healthy Nunez is expendable. Release Stephen Pearce The 2018 World Series hero has been plagued with injuries in 2019. Currently on rehab Pearce, is nearly ready to return. A valuable member of the team last season Pearce has only 89 at_ bats in 2019. Pearce signed a one year 6,000,000 dollar deal this past offseason. With plenty of power, Pearce still carries a potent bat when healthy. Would be a valuable acquisition for a team contending for the playoffs. Rookie Michael Chavis has been the regular first baseman. Trade Mitch Moreland With rookie Michael Chavis playing every day Mitch Moreland could be expendable. Moreland is in the middle of a two_ year contract extension. Last season, Moreland was a valuable contributor for the world champions He had one of his best season hitting 15 home runs driving in 68 runs and batting 245. When healthy he is one of the best defensive first basemen in baseball. Moreland, when healthy, would bring value to an organization with a thin farm system. So far, the 2019 season has been disappointing for Red Sox fans. With injuries to key players Nathan Eovaldi and no proven close,r the team has been struggling. With the All-Star game one week away the club is nine games behind the first place Yankees. If the Sox do not gain any ground soon, then the club will have to move some overpriced players. With half a season left, the Red Sox are far too talented to be stuck in third place.
