This is a daily BSJ off-season feature that will arrive in time for your lunch, Monday-Friday. A spin around the leagues with the latest news, notes, and rumors around Major League Baseball.


One by one, the Red Sox have watched some low-cost free agents come off the board lately.

They had shown an interest in reuniting with Travis Shaw...but Shaw ended up signing with Toronto.

The Sox had talked to Rich Hill about returning to Boston...but Hill ended up agreeing to a one-year deal with the Minnesota Twins.

And there are reports that Massachusetts native Steve Cishek would like to sign with the Sox...but his asking price is thought to be too high, at least for the time being.

What's going on?
