But we already have a Refsnyder.This team desperately needs right handed hitting or LHP will dominate them. Duvall still put up a good split. vs leftys last year (0.844 OPS), so if he is used as a platoon bat/4th OF he would be a great addition to the lineup. He has also graded out pretty well defensively over his career, with even pretty good marks in CF.
Re: this and Sanchez, we are currently in need of 2 of primary SS/2B/CF. The Red Sox Payroll twitter has us $18m under the threshold, and thinks Duvall may get $9-10m. Fangraphs projects Andrus as getting 2/$20m. Iglesias may be half that, and Kim gets $7m this year, but whichever way we go the reality is we're running out of space to stay under, especially if we want to leave any room for mid-season acquisitions.
