Dave Dombrowski didn't exactly call the Yankees "the Golden State Warriors" after the Aroldis Chapman signing, but the Red Sox honcho did say this: "I wish that somebody else would have made him a better offer so he would have gone somewhere else, for sure. No question."

Clay Buchholz's salary ($13.5M in '17) and Drew Pomeranz's flexibility to start/relieve makes Buchholz likelier trade candidate for Red Sox. Dave Dombrowski said he has a preference list for which pitcher he wants to trade, though he declined to share, of course.

Josh Rutledge figures to compete with fellow utility infielder Marco Hernandez for last spot on the Red Sox's bench. As a Rule 5 pick, Rutledge must stay on the big-league roster all season or be offered back to his previous team (Colorado).

Red Sox have reacquired infielder Josh Rutledge from the Rockies in the Rule 5 draft. They lose pitcher Justin Haley (to Angels) and outfielder Aneury Tavarez (to Orioles). Rutledge helps restore some middle-infield depth.

Red Sox brush off Ortiz comeback talk after post

After David Ortiz posted to Instagram that Chris Sale's trade to the Red Sox got him "thinking," Dave Dombrowski downplayed any speculation about a potential return for the beloved slugger.

Dave Dombrowski on whether Chris Sale's jersey-cutting incident in July ever gave Red Sox pause: "I think you do your checking when you read that and see what causes some things. But after I've checked things out, not really, no." Dombrowski said he's "heard a lot of pleasant things" about Sale off the field.

Scott Boras on possible extension for Xander Bogaerts: "He's going to be (in Boston) for the next three years. We know that. I think he's always said he's on a winning team, he's playing in a great city. I'm sure Xander is very happy in Boston." Boras called Bogaerts a "statured, unique player at his age." In other words, if Red Sox want to lock up Bogaerts, they probably need to come with nine-figure deal.

Dave Dombrowski says Red Sox took calls today on all starting pitchers beyond the three aces, but no urgency to make a trade. Dombrowski says he's OK with four lefties in rotation. "They're four good lefties."

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Red Sox will trade a starting pitcher, but it could take a while. The longer they hold off, the more likely a pitching-strapped team might be to give up something of value, either in prospects or big-league talent.

Asked about Yoan Moncada, White Sox manager Rick Rentería drew a familiar comparison: "The first clip I saw of him, he reminded me a little bit from his setup and everything of (Robinson) Cano." Red Sox evaluators often likened Moncada to Cano. "I know that, at 21 years of age, he still has a long way to go in terms of what he's ultimately going to be," Rentería added. "I think he's a very talented human being who we hope is going to be an impact-type player."
