Chaim Bloom talks Plawecki, Devers, Bogaerts and more
It appears Kevin Plawecki won't be out of work for long.
The catcher, who was designated for assignment by the Red Sox Friday night, has officially been cut loose after clearing waivers, is drawing significant interest from the Texas Rangers, per an industry source.
It appears as though there is a strong possibility Plawecki - who is playing under a $2.25 million deal for the 2022 season - will be signing with the Rangers after he clears release waivers at 1 p.m. Wednesday.
The decision to move on from Plawecki has come under great scrutiny, with multiple Red Sox players expressing displeasure with the move. The catcher had been limited to almost exclusively catching just Michael Wacha with the emergence of Connor Wong and Reese McGuire.
The Rangers primary catcher is Jonah Heim, with Sam Huff serving as their backup. The move would represent a reunion with former Red Sox hitting coach Tim Hyers.
