2. Jorge Soler
Jorge Soler and the Boston Red Sox have been connected for nearly a month now, and although he could easily be the next member of the vaunted "All-Expressed Interest" team that the Red Sox have assembled this offseason, the door is not completely closed.
Soler's 2023 campaign with the Miami Marlins flew under the radar, as he clubbed an impressive 36 home runs and drove in 75 runs. In 10 years in the bigs, Soler has socked 170 home runs and driven in 452 runs. The 31-year-old is a pure power profile, with a career average of only .243.
The Red Sox had been "eyeing" the Cuban slugger since early mid-January and were even tabbed as the "favorites" to land the 2021 World Series MVP at one point, but both Jon Heyman and Hector Gomez have reported that the Red Sox will likely be outbid.
The Toronto Blue Jays and New York Mets have also been in the mix, with Toronto reportedly willing to offer Soler a multi-year deal. The San Francisco Giants have also emerged as another contender for Soler's services.
Soler would most likely project to DH for the Red Sox, as he only started 14 games in the outfield for Miami last season (all in right field).
