Ex-Rangers All-Star Pegged As Option For Shortstop-Needy Red Sox By MLB Insider

Rumors are swirling around the Boston Red Sox at the moment.

With middle infield openings after losing Xander Bogaerts in free agency and Trevor Story to injury, many have speculated who will actually play the spots in 2022. One player that has been tied to the Red Sox is longtime Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus, according to MLB Network’s Jon Morosi.

“There are a lot of at-bats and innings available at the shortstop position for the Boston Red Sox,” Morosi said. “To me, having a non-roster shortstop come in and try to win that job, or at least add some flexibility because if you are the Red Sox and all of a sudden you bring in Elvis Andrus to play shortstop and he wins the job or plays well enough to win the job you can have (Enrique Hernandez) play center field and that opens up the question of what Jarren Duran’s role is going to be.
