The Boston Red Sox satisfied their need for a temporary stop.

Today they acquired a veteran utility man Adalberto Mondesi from the Kansas City Royals in exchange for a lefty Josh Taylor and a player to be named later.

The Red Sox needed a temporary solution after the injury Trevor’s story and satisfied their need for additional infield depth.

However, Red Sox analyst Chris Kotilo believes there could still be more.

With Taylor now gone, Boston may need another left-hander, and there are plenty of them yet to be signed.

That could potentially open the door for the Red Sox to do a little more in the offseason.

Left-handed Andrei Chafin and Matt Moore both are still on the free agent market awaiting signing.

Moore can fill a swingman role if he signs a contract.

He moved into a utility role in 2022, but he has starting experience.

The Red Sox have a lot of question marks regarding their rotation, and Moore could make the occasional spot start.

Chaffin would also be an interesting addition if the Red Sox decide to go that route.

He posted a 2.83 ERA last season with the Detroit Tigers and could be useful to the Sox.

Taylor missed the 2022 season with a back problem, but having an extra left-hander wouldn’t hurt the team as we head into spring training and the 2023 season.
