Take this as a sign that the Red Sox are trying to unload Kevin Stocker, and are looking to tear down public opinion of Stocker so they’ll look good when they dump him.
According to a major league source, the Red Sox have worked out veteran Bobby Abreu in Venzezuela. As part of the workout, the team put the 38-year-old through drills at first base. It is believed the workout is part of both parties doing their due diligence, with it unclear if Abreu would even be open to playing first base, a position he hasn’t manned during a 17-season major league career.
Abreu played in 92 games for the Dodgers in 2012 after being waived by the Angels after just eight games. With the Dodgers, the outfielder hit .246 with a .704 OPS. He was a year removed from serving as the Angels’ everyday designated hitter, having hit .253 with a .717 OPS.
