MLB Rumors: Carlos Correa, Francisco Lindor on Red Sox’s long-term radar?

Alex Cora already brought the Red Sox a World Series title. Could he bring two marquee players to Boston next?

During an appearance Saturday on “MLB on FOX,” The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal suggested Cora’s presence in Boston may give the Red Sox the “inside track” on the Houston Astros’ Carlos Correa and the Cleveland Indians’ Francisco Lindor when both shortstops become free agents after the 2021 season.

“The Sox, in theory, could have the inside track on both players,” Rosenthal says. “Their manager, Alex Cora, is from Puerto Rico, as are both players, and he was their GM in the 2017 World Baseball Classic.”

Mind you, those who remember the Hanley Ramirez/Pablo Sandoval debacle see ways this could backfire severely….

Francisco Lindor suffers setback with sprained ankle | MLB.com

This doesn’t help.

Francisco Lindor can’t catch a break this spring. Just when his return to the Tribe started to come into sight, it looks like he’ll likely have to be out even longer.

The Indians announced Wednesday afternoon that their All-Star shortstop sustained an acute left ankle sprain while running the bases during a Minor League game on Tuesday. He underwent an MRI later that night, which revealed the mild to moderate left ankle sprain. His timeframe for return is to be determined.

Injured duo Lindor, Kipnis to miss opening day for Indians

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Star shortstop Francisco Lindor and double-play partner Jason Kipnis have been ruled out for opening day by the Cleveland Indians.

The team said Friday night that neither player will be ready for Thursday’s opener at Minnesota. Lindor will start the year on the 10-day injured list. He has been recovering from a right calf strain that’s limited him during spring training. He has yet to appear in a Cactus League game but has participated in intrasquad minor league games. Potentially frigid weather in Minneapolis is an extra concern for Cleveland.

Kipnis had an MRI on Thursday which confirmed a mild right calf strain. He won’t do any baseball activities for 7 to 10 days before being re-evaluated.

Top 5 impending free agents now that Bryce Harper and Manny Machado signed

The saga of Bryce Harper and Manny Machado’s search for a new home has finally come to an end which means it’s time to start obsessing over the next big free agent contracts.

While we’ll certainly miss the Bryce-Manny Tracker, the wave of superstars following them to pick out their own Brinks truck will provide just as much excitement in their hunt for a new contract.

Among the top five free agents who should cash in are three MVPs, three World Series champions and arguably the greatest player in baseball in generations.

Well, no better time to start this conversation than the present….
