By settling with David Ortiz moments before their arbitration hearing the Red Sox potentially saved $1.75 million compared to his requested salary, but general manager Ben Cherington said afterward that the savings likely won’t lead to another move before the start of spring training.
“I wouldn’t expect any major moves between now and Sunday,” Cherington told Rob Bradford of WEEI.com. “We’re still working on some stuff. Certainly the spring training roster is mostly what it’s going to be.”
That wording certainly doesn’t rule out a signing or trade in the middle of spring training, but Bradford reports that “there’s still no traction” between the Red Sox and Roy Oswalt.
