Red Sox have a move to make soon

NASHVILLE - Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said he’s made progress “on one thing” which hasn’t been reported in the media and his choice for Pawtucket manager, but was not willing to announce it as he left the winter meetings Thursday morning.

“We spent last night working on a couple of of things but nothing we’re ready to announce,” Cherington said. “We made progress on one thing but its not quite teed up yet.”

Asked whether it was a free-agent or trade and Cherington indicated, “Can’t say but sometime soon I can say.”

Cherington said he’s had the need to add a lefthanded hitter or two who can play first base and the outfield.

“We’ve been trying to add to team without taking away from the team and keep our core of young talent in place. We made some steps toward that but we have more work to do. We have to add more things. I guess it (the winter meetings) was productive. We learned a lot and got some things done.”

Cherington has added catcher David Ross, outfielders Jonny Gomes and Shane Victorino and catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli.

The biggest area of need - starting pitching - is still a work in progress.

“We’ve done more work on it, but nothing is close,” he said.
