Report: Sox ‘remain in touch’ with free-agent left-hander originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Red Sox are one of the many teams scouring the starting pitching market this offseason.

After losing Eduardo Rodriguez in free agency to the Detroit Tigers, the Red Sox reportedly have their eyes on another left-hander. They remain in contact with veteran southpaw Steven Matz, according to MassLive.com’s Chris Cotillo.

Matz, 30, is coming off a solid bounceback season with the Toronto Blue Jays. The former New York Mets hurler went 14-7 with a 3.82 ERA in 29 starts during the 2021 campaign. For his seven-year career, Matz is 45-48 with a 4.24 ERA in 141 games (136 starts).

The starting pitching market has been hot over the last week with a handful of big names finding homes for 2022 and beyond. In addition to E-Rod joining the Tigers, right-hander Noah Syndergaard signed a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Anglels and two-time Cy Young award winner Justin Verlander re-signed with the Houston Astros on a one-year deal.
