• The Boston Red Sox catch the last big name in MLB free agency
  • Trevor Story will take on a different role for Boston
  • He remains one of MLB’s top power bats at shortstop

Trevor Story, one of the remaining big names in MLB free agency, has found a new home.

The 29-year-old has reportedly signed with the Boston Red Sox, agreeing to a six-year deal worth $140 million.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today was the first to report about the deal.

However, Story may be joining the Red Sox playing a different position.

According to Jim Bowden of CBS Sports, the two-time All-Star will be playing second base since Xander Bogaerts currently occupies the shortstop position.

The Story deal will also address a long-standing issue that the Red Sox have been trying to resolve since 2017.

Former AL MVP Dustin Pedroia was the one at the second base position before he got injured.

However, the two-time Silver Slugger award winner could still end up playing the shortstop position later on.

This will depend on the plans of Bogaerts who could opt out after the coming MLB season, NBC Sports reported.

“It would be nice if we could get an addition like that after some of the big names that we lost to free agency or traded away,” Bogaerts said to when the deal was first rumored. “That’s a big boy. That’s a big bat right there. That’s an impact player.”

Story’s new role should be pretty interesting to see once the MLB season starts.

He remains one of the game’s top power bats at shortstop, a big addition to the Red Sox this season.

With Story at second, Kike Hernandez could settle into center field and Christian Arroyo becomes a utility bat off the bench.
