The Boston Red Sox have a few players that should not be on their team
The Boston Red Sox have been extremely streaky this season. They were in last place in the AL East entering play on May 16 with a 13-21 record. From May 16 through June 26, they were 29-10, which got them all the way up to 42-31 and good enough for second in the AL East and the third best record in the AL overall. But since then, they have gone 7-18. So they are back at .500 with a 49-49 record and back in last place in the AL East.
They now have to decide on whether they will be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. Especially if they are buyers at the trade deadline, there are three players that cannot be on the roster after the trade deadline.
3 Red Sox that shouldn’t be on the roster to start the season
1) Red Sox reliever Kaleb Ort
The Red Sox need to address their bullpen to be a playoff team in 2022. Currently, their bullpen has an ERA of 4.23, which is 23rd in baseball. As a result, they really need to get two or three relievers but the reliever that will can’t be on the roster after the trade deadline is Kaleb Ort.
Ort, 30, made his MLB debut in one single appearance in 2021 with the Red Sox. This season, he has appeared in eight games in the majors. In 7.1 innings, he has allowed 13 hits, 10 runs, and five walks, amounting to an ERA of 12.27.
In 33 games in Triple-A, he had a 3.12 ERA so he would be a good option to keep in Triple-A as depth but the Red Sox have to get a few relievers to improve their bullpen and Ort shouldn’t be one of their eight relievers.
