Eight Shortstops Red Sox Could Target After Trevor Story Injury

Ha-Seong Kim, San Diego Padres
What if Bogaerts and Kim simply switched spots? Obviously, that’s a downgrade for Boston when painted as such, but Kim is a good, versatile infielder who’s coming off a 2022 season in which he posted 3.7 fWAR, the 11th-best mark among MLB shortstops. He’s also only 27 and on a team-friendly contract, meaning the Red Sox would need to part with legitimate talent to pry him away from San Diego, but it’s definitely a worthwhile consideration given Boston’s glaring need up the middle…

Adalberto Mondesi, Kansas City Royals
This would be a dart throw, seeing as Mondesi was limited to 50 games the last two seasons due to injuries and proved inconsistent with the bat in the years before that. But he’s still just 27 and showed flashes of being a dynamic player shortly after arriving in the majors, thanks to both his defense and his speed. Mondesi, a free agent next offseason, swiped 99 bases in 236 games between 2018 and 2020.

Red Sox’s Trevor Story Will Miss Time After Elbow Procedure

Who could have seen this coming? Not the Red Sox doctors, apparently.

Boston announced Trevor Story underwent an internal bracing procedure of the right ulnar collateral ligament — which is an alternative to Tommy John surgery. The Red Sox did not list a timetable for recovery, but internet searches say between four and six months.

Story signed a six-year deal with the Red Sox prior to the 2021 Major League Baseball season. Despite being primarily a shortstop with the Colorado Rockies, Story played second base and, when healthy, was one of the best defensively at the position last year.
