Jon Lester to meet with Atlanta Braves — Jon Lester is on the record saying he would give the Red Sox a hometown discount. But the Atlanta Braves represent a chance to actually play at home. Lester's free agent tour will take him a short distance on Thursday when he meets with the Braves.

For Red Sox, rotation is main priority — Ben Cherington met with reporters several times last week during the general managers meetings in Phoenix. As he fielded questions about rebuilding a team that finished last, Cherington invariably came back to the same theme: The rotation. "Starting pitching is something we have to address," Cherington said.

Red Sox interested in Korean lefty Hyeon-jong Yang — PHOENIX - The Red Sox have been cautious with pitchers on the international market since a $103.1 million investment in Daisuke Matsuzaka in 2006 produced only two good seasons. But that could change next week when Korean lefthander Hyeon-jong Yang becomes available. The Kia Tigers will post Yang on Monday, according to a baseball source.

Red Sox Around The Globe — Lester's agents seek meeting with Red Sox ownership By Peter Abraham / Globe StaffPHOENIX - Jon Lester's agents are trying to arrange a face-to-face meeting with Red Sox ownership sometime soon and might bring the pitcher along to hear what they have to say.As many as seven teams, including the

Red Sox took shot at Giancarlo Stanton but have moved on — PHOENIX - The Red Sox, like plenty of other teams, took their shot at trading for Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton. But they've moved on to other more realistic opportunities. Miami president of baseball operations Mike Hill said Tuesday that teams have stopped trying to deal for Stanton.

Glut in Red Sox outfield doesn’t bother GM Ben Cherington — PHOENIX - Red Sox GM Ben Cherington was asked Tuesday if he had an outfield alignment in mind for next season. The Red Sox have nine outfielders on their 40-man roster, 10 if you include utility player Brock Holt. All played in the majors at some point last season and at least five have good reason to consider themselves everyday players.

Why the Red Sox should re-sign Jon Lester — PHOENIX - Cole Hamels wants his 2019 option picked up and the Phillies will expect your top prospects for him. James Shields will be 33 in a few weeks and has a 5.46 postseason earned run average. Shall we keep going? Justin Masterson might be better off in the bullpen.

As general managers meet, Red Sox have plenty on their plate — PHOENIX - Greetings from the General Manager's Meetings. Contrary to popular belief, it's not all trade and free-agent talk. There are actual meetings about assorted MLB issues and Ben Cherington is the chairman this year. A few notes: Continue reading below As Buster Olney and others have reported, there is an increasing sense that Pablo Sandoval will stay with the Giants.

Red Sox have pieces to retool roster — PHOENIX - The general managers meetings, which start Monday at the Biltmore Hotel here, are traditionally a time for baseball executives to start the process of setting up trades and free-agent signings that take place later in the offseason. But can the Red Sox wait that long?

Ben Cherington believes a Red Sox reunion with Jon Lester possible — The Red Sox made a tepid attempt at signing Jon Lester in spring training then traded him to Oakland in July. But general manager Ben Cherington still believes a reunion with the free agent lefthander is possible. "I don't think there is anything in our relationship that would prohibit that," Cherington told MLB Network Radio.

@YourSource123 don’t think any teams are dumb enough to make decisions based on media comments.

Two #RedSox team sources say Bogaerts is still the SS. Didn’t think that would change, but worth checking.
