"It’s a fascinating camp beyond the frustration over their inaction. The Red Sox have some very exciting outfield prospects in Wilyer Abreu and Ceddanne Rafaela. Were Alex Cora to play those two with Jarren Duran, the Sox would have one of the best defensive outfields in baseball. Tyler O’Neill complicates that alignment, of course. In the infield, Trevor Story might be playing for his career after two seasons lost to injury. Vaughn Grissom, acquired for Chris Sale, takes over at second base. Neither member of that keystone combination is guaranteed to be a viable option; they combined for 0.1 bWAR last year."
