Adam Duvall, OF

The Red Sox have plenty of offense, but what they really need is starting pitching. In that case, swapping Duvall for a proven starter would make a ton of sense and be a win-win for both sides.

Despite missing a good chunk of the year with injury, Duvall has been productive when healthy. The former All-Star and World Series champ is batting .257/.320/.515 with 7 homers and 27 RBIs in 39 games for Boston.

The problem is that the Red Sox don’t have much room for him these days. With the emergence of Jarren Duran in center, there’s no longer space for Duvall in an outfield that also features All-Star-caliber players in Masataka Yoshida and Alex Verdugo. And with Casas manning first and Justin Turner holding down DH, there aren’t many places for Alex Cora to play him.

Duvall is a good player who just doesn’t fit on Boston’s roster anymore but would still be a valuable lineup addition for another team. If Bloom can find someone willing to part with a decent rotation arm, Duvall will likely be the main piece going the other way.
